Navigating the Intersection of Gaming and Behavioral Health

In this episode of “Kinectify Conversations”, host Sean Topchi, Director of Business Development at Kinectify, engages in a deep dive discussion with Joseph Martin, the CEO of Kinectify, and Daniel Umfleet, the founder and CEO of Kindbridge Behavioral Health.

The dialogue centers on their mission of sharing insights from gaming industry leaders, drawing on years of experience navigating the complexities and impacts of compliance. Umfleet elaborates on the dual focus of his organizations: Kindbridge Behavioral Health and Kindbridge Research Institute. Both strive to improve healthcare options for individuals affected by gambling-related harms, but each has a unique approach. The research institute is a charitable organization conducting extensive studies on various topics, such as the impact of problem gambling on veterans. On the other hand, the clinic, Kindbridge Behavioral Health, aims to build a robust workforce of over 50 specialists trained to provide better mental health options to problem gamblers. The episode explores Umfleet’s entry into this field, direct technologies for care, and their integration into solutions like Kinectify.
