Tranquil is a web application that provides a platform for insomnia treatment and improved sleep health for students.
Do you ever struggle to fall asleep at night, or wonder why some mornings you struggle to get out of bed despite having slept a full eight hours? Are you interested in helping university students across the US achieve a better night’s sleep, and as a result help lower rates of mental illness and create healthier campus environments? Tranquil looks to do exactly that by building an insomnia treatment and sleep improvement platform specifically for students. Tranquil plans to combine clinically-proven Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) and dynamic sleep education content to create a user-friendly application that helps students improve their sleep.
Tranquil is designed to be useful for a wide range of students, including anyone interested in learning how to improve their sleep, as well as those suffering from insomnia (~2 million college students). Tranquil will feature three primary components, in the form of a mobile application and/or a web-based platform: 1) A diagnostic intake survey to assess the severity of a student’s sleep challenges, resulting in a personalized approach to sleep education, 2) A daily sleep journal for users to log information about their sleep, 3) CBT-I and sleep education materials, in video, audio, and text format. Additionally, gamification techniques will be layered into the experience to help drive engagement, and virtual sleep coaches will be made available to students experiencing particularly severe sleep challenges.
