October 22, 2019, San Francisco and Oakland, CA – Today, CredibleMind and Well Being Trust (WBT) announced a strategic partnership to make expert-curated and consumer-rated mental, emotional, and spiritual health resources available to all, online.
More than one in five Americans are experiencing significant mental health issues at any given time, and 80 percent experience mental health issues over their lifetime. Both organizations seek to normalize the conversation around emotional and mental health, advance access to quality resources, address the full spectrum of population-based mental health, and help people flourish.
“CredibleMind is a one-of-a-kind platform, driven by data scientists and academic experts that is helping ensure individuals seeking help on the web are getting credible, trustworthy resources,” said Tyler Norris, MDiv, Chief Executive of Well Being Trust. “We are excited to combine efforts and leverage their work to create a strong digital presence and advance healing across the nation.”
Through this partnership, which includes a grant through the Healthy Communities Foundation, Well Being Trust will sponsor and endorse CredibleMind’s flagship consumer website, CredibleMind.com, and the organizations will share content and resources to more rapidly grow awareness, expand access to helpful materials, and normalize the conversation around mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being. For example, CredibleMind has built a widget for Well Being Trust, so anyone seeking help on the WBT site can easily search and access—by topic and type of material—curated mental health resources on CredibleMind.
“We are honored to partner with Well Being Trust in addressing this critical societal problem,” said Deryk Van Brunt, founder and chief executive officer of CredibleMind, the leader in bringing expert-curated and user-rated emotional mental health resources to consumers nationwide. “Working together, we will move more quickly to bring needed resources to communities and organizations that need them to meaningfully move the needle on mental, emotional and spiritual health.”
Well Being Trust joins the Healthy Communities Foundation as an endorser and supporter of CredibleMind, along with a growing list of public and private entities that are customizing CredibleMind.com for the communities they serve.
Our mission is to help people 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. While 75% of people work on their mind wellness issue on their own, 95% of self-help resources lack scientific validation. CredibleMind uniquely provides users with evidence-based self-help approaches, and helps users find the highest quality resources of all types, curated for each individual in a friendly, familiar and accessible form – found at CredibleMind.com. CredibleMind for Organizations, our enterprise offering, allows employers, insurers, healthcare providers, health departments and community organizations to customize our platform with organizational-specific resources, creating a complete population-based mental health system, including reporting and analytics on needs, use and outcomes.
