About the apps and platform
Ggtude and GG Apps platform were created with one goal in mind: to help people overcome their challenges and improve their mental wellness.
The apps are focused on simple but smart CBT based mechanics allowing users to improve their mental and emotional wellbeing. By identifying and responding to thoughts, negative as well as positive, users can improve their understanding, and cope better with mental challenges.
GGtude was founded by A/Prof Guy Doron (IDC Herzliya), and Gur Ilany (entrepreneur, designer and author of 4 children’s books).
