Like many startups, the founders of VirtuOwl began with a glaring need in the community.

“Our schools are really struggling right now,” VirtuOwl General Manager Bo Morgan said. “Our students are really struggling. There’s been a 40% increase in mental health issues in schools since 2020. School counselors are overburdened right now. The recommended ratio between students and counselors is 250 students per counselor. The average in Alabama is 409 students per counselor.”

The result is a safe and secure platform designed to bring students together with counselors, faculty and other administrators to address mental health issues.
