U2 Interactive welcomes National Church Residences as a new customer.

National Church Residences have contracted with U Squared Interactive to provide Beating the Blues to residents living within their supported housing programs in the Ohio area.

Michael Barber, Chief Medical Officer at National Church Residences, said "Many of our residents living in supportive housing suffer from depression and anxiety disorders that decrease the quality of their lives. Being able to offer Beating the Blues to them in their homes will provide unprecedented access to effective quality care that would otherwise not be possible."

John Smith, Chief Operating Officer at U Squared Interactive, said "We are delighted to be working with National Church Residences and see this as an innovative use of Beating the Blues. The program will be delivered and supported by staff from National Church Residences. We expect it to provide a significant impact to the overall wellbeing of their residents and help us to identify a model of delivery that could be widely replicated."
