Mike Clare

Co-Founder & CEO at Mood Health

Mike is the founder and CEO of Mood Health. Losing his mother at an early age kicked off a cycle of depression and struggle for Mike and his family. After decades of being prescribed the wrong medications; finding it nearly impossible to book an appointment with an effective local psychiatrist; and even having to choose between paying medical bills and making the rent, Mike made it his mission to make excellent mental health care accessible and convenient to everyone.

A proven company builder and designer, Mike was a Director at startup studio Juxtapose, where he took multiple businesses from pre-conception through launch. He has led product development, user research, design, and marketing for companies that have to date raised more than $600M in capital.

Mike received his bachelor’s in Industrial Design from the Rhode Island School of Design. He loves attending gallery openings, checking out new restaurants, making ceramics, and drawing.
