Co-founded by brothers Andrew and Matt Rubin, Symptom Media started as a partnership between film professionals and mental health clinicians with the mission to fill a critical gap in mental health education. Recognizing the need to de-stigmatize and show what mental health issues actually look like, Andrew and Matt’s film and business experience fused with mental health clinicians to launch Symptom Media.
All films are produced with a multi-disciplinary team of behavioral health experts consisting of psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker and a psychiatric nurse practitioner collaborate in all aspects of the development process alongside professional filmmakers.
Symptom Media launched its Collection via subscription streaming platform with its Volume One of over 200 DSM 5 Guided Films.
Since the company’s launch, the film collection and customer base continues to expand.
Symptom Media’s Volume Two of DSM 5 Guided Films, ICD 10 Guided Films and Assessment Tools released between 2014 and 2017.
