Bringing Objective Measurement to Behavioral Health


Future Life, Inc. is developing Face2Face™, a software platform for advanced mental health evaluation and treatment. Face2Face™ analyzes Facial Micro-expressions of Emotion (FMEE) in order to more accurately assess mental health.  Our initial focus will address Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  Preliminary findings suggest that Face2Face™ raises the accuracy in uncovering PTSD to 80+% (versus 40% rate as reported by the VA).


Face2Face™ can be used in an office setting (as shown) or anywhere across the nation through Telehealth. Telehealth is a new and rapidly-growing industry that enables clinicians to interact with their patients over great distances and provide services to those who would otherwise not have access. This allows patients to get the care they need from the comfort of home or anywhere with an internet connection. Telehealth improves accessibility and reduces the cost of patient treatment which is desperately needed to help reintegrate our combat veterans into modern lifestyle.


Face2Face™ automatically analyzes the patient's facial expressions and applies this data to specially designed algorithms, watching for signs of PTSD and other mental illnesses. By recording and analyzing the patient's emotional response in real time as well as incorporating data from past sessions, the software will be able to detect patients in crisis before their situation deteriorates.



In addition to PTSD and other traumas (sexual assault, urban trauma, first response), there are a wide range of applications that Face2Face™ has the potential to address.

The future Face2Face™ product portfolio will include, but is not limited to:

  • Face2Face™ Public Safety/Homeland Security: Criminal Investigation and Intelligence
  • Face2Face™ Recovery: Early Recovery from Substance Abuse. Identify those at high risk of relapse to trigger additional care
  • Face2Face™ Human Capital: Recruitment, Personnel Management, Organizational Development
  • Face2Face™ Education: Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Face2Face™ Education: IEPs and Learning Disability
  • Face2Face™ Education: Conduct Disorders

Future Life Clinical Roadmap

Clinical Trials and Proof-of-Concept Studies

Academic Studies with American University, Department of Psychology, Emotions Lab

Study #1: Initiated February 2018 and ongoing. Evaluation of Emotional Reactivity and Accuracy of Emotional Responses to Standardized Interpersonal Stimuli in Subjects using the Face2Face™ emotional analysis system.

─ Interpersonal Emotion Lab with Dr. Nathaniel Herr

American University Interpersonal Emotions Lab Interim Findings:

Future Life, Inc. is currently working with the Interpersonal Emotions Lab at American University in Washington D.C. (under Dr Nathaniel Herr) on a spider phobia study to test the hypothesis that FMEE can detect the differences between subjects who aren’t fearful; subjects who are afraid; subjects who are trying to hide their fear; and subjects pretending to be afraid. This work has clinical implications for disorders like PTSD where many patients attempt to conceal their problem, or alternatively, pretend to have a problem for financial gain. The interim findings from this study are presented below as a graph, and corresponding chart, accompanied by the illustration, “The Faces of Fear”. Face2Face™ can differentiate between natural and fake fear as well as between natural fearlessness and false fearlessness at the p<.001 level of significance.

Fear Profiles

Difference between Natural and Fake Fear – Chi Square = 11.57 p<.001    

Difference between Unafraid and Hidden Fear – Chi Square = 16.00 p<.001

Study #2: Starting August 2018. Measuring the Impact of Sleep Deprivation as an Analog for Stress on Emotional Reactivity and Resilience using Face2Face™ emotional analysis systems.

─ Interpersonal Emotion Lab with Dr. Nathaniel Herr

Proof-of-Concept Clinical Study with Boston VA Healthcare System (Behavioral Science Division)

Through a fully executed cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) with the VA, a clinical study will start in late September/early October 2018. In this study we will collect data from two groups of 25 subjects: one identified as having PTSD and the other PTSD-free, in order to establish the relationship between the presence of PTSD and evidence of involuntary emotional self-regulation in response to a set of 100 stimulus pictures with established degrees of emotional valence and arousal. This study will include a split-half design to explore if the subjects' levels of PTSD not only predict their reactivity to the stimulus pictures but their reactivity to the stimulus pictures will predict the subject's levels of PTSD.

─ Dr. Brian Marx, VA Boston

Proof-of-Concept Clinical Trial with Carrier Clinic, Belle Mead, NJ

In January 2019 a Proof-of-Concept study with 60 patients in early recovery from substance abuse will begin. Clinician-facilitated sessions will be conducted inperson and by telehealth, using Facial Micro-expressions of Emotion (FMEE) as the clinical tool to assess the incidence of relapse. The study will be conducted under the auspices of a leading academic institution, Princeton University. Upon completion, Carrier Clinic will initiate a larger study with 300-500 private practice patients. Carrier Clinic is the largest Mental Health facility in New Jersey.

─ Donald Parker, Carrier Clinic President & CEO

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) held a poster session during their Annual Convention (May 7, 2018) at the Javits Center in NYC. Face2Face™ was presented and well received (Poster #3591).
