The MARCo Difference

Mental health support is not a one size fits all approach. Every student has unique challenges, and you can be ready to address all of them with MARCo's five methods of care:

Robot friend waving for companionship

Companionship

Everybody needs a friend to listen every now and then. Incapable of judging, MARCo will compassionately listen to all your students have to say and leverage dozens of fun games, stories, and other personable activities to bring out a smile!

Guided Meditation and Relaxation

Stressed? Anxious? A consultation with MARCo will lead to a guided meditation… Or one of numerous other relaxation activities.

Talk Support

MARCo is equipped with a multitude of exercises based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Behavioral Activation (BA) to walk your students through their negative thoughts and how to address them in healthy manners.

Biofeedback

Mental health health doesn't just affect what goes on in our brains; it affects our whole bodies. MARCo can track physical indicators, such as eating and sleeping habits, and promote a physical/mental health balance.

High Alert Outreach

If a student is at risk for suicide or self-harm, MARCo will immediately text their emergency contacts and follow up by providing the student with online resources.
