Our mission is to help individuals flourish by optimizing their mental health, emotional wellbeing, and spiritual growth. A majority of adults in the U.S. have a mental or emotional health challenge and want assistance. However, only a small fraction receive professional services (especially with the acute shortage of providers). While 75 percent turn to self-care first, CredibleMind uniquely provides users with evidence-based self-help approaches and helps them find the most appropriate resources and interventions in a friendly, familiar, and accessible form.

The CredibleMind platform enables payers, public health departments, employers, insurers, healthcare providers, and community organizations with a comprehensive upstream population-based mental health ecosystem, complete with local customization, engagement tools, and analytics reporting on needs, use, and outcomes.

Headspace Health helps organizations make the workplace a source of mental health strength and support. By giving employees the tools they need to take care of their minds, we’re stopping daily stress from building into serious cases of anxiety and depression, and solving problems of lost productivity and absenteeism at the same time. We focus on building healthy routines that last a lifetime across the spectrum of mental health and wellbeing needs, from promotion and prevention to therapy and psychiatry, guiding people to the proper care at the right time.

“Everybody has mental health and every employer has an opportunity to invest in their employees’ well-being by creating a psychologically safe workplace. Challenging stereotypes, educating our workforces, and building communities that supports each other is the first step in removing barriers that otherwise limit our employees’ access to mental health resources.”

John Alaimo, Disability Inclusion Leader | Founder, Mental Health & Well-Being, Amazon

“As a result of the pandemic, the Mental Health of our employees and their families has become its own crisis. It’s our job as employers to help support them through it.  Now more than ever, we need to ensure we have our finger on the pulse of the mental health of our employees and their families and look for creative ways to meet employees and families where they’re at.”
