/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Mental health issues loom large today for people and organizations. Over the past decade, Google searches for anxiety have grown 400%, rates of depression and suicidal ideation have doubled in a decade on college campuses, and 7% of all prescriptions filled in the U.S. are for anxiety and depression. Yet organizations that provide coverage or deliver care struggle to de-stigmatize mental health help-seeking activities, address access issues, and get upstream from acute issues. Many times benefits offered, such as Employee Assistance Programs, go under-utilized.
That's why CredibleMind, the leading consumer website promoting mental health, emotional wellbeing, and spiritual growth, announced today the launch of a customizable behavioral health navigation solution—CredibleMindPRO—for employers, insurers, healthcare providers, and community organizations.
"Seventy-five percent of people who attempt to work on mental health issues do so on their own rather than with the help of professionals, noted Deryk Van Brunt
, Ph.D., co-founder and chief executive officer of CredibleMind. "And 95% end up in the wild west of the World Wide Web."
CredibleMindPRO lets them do so with greater confidence, showcasing expert-vetted resources as well as services available through their own employer, insurer, or healthcare provider. "We bring it all together in one place, in a friendly, familiar format, like Amazon or Netflix. We offer personalized recommendations, expert and user ratings, engaging self-assessments, and easy-to-understand articles introducing each topic," added Dr. Van Brunt
"This 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
, MD, Chief Executive, Well Being Trust and a CredibleMindPRO partner.
CredibleMindPRO goes well beyond the company's direct-to-consumer site by delivering a co-branded, localized, integrated, system-wide platform. It enables organizations to help people better navigate their behavioral health benefits, connect to high-performance networks, and start upstream to reduce mental health risks and build greater resilience. Near real-time analytics deliver de-identified metrics, helping organizations catch trends early and finetune intervention strategies.
Using AI models designed by nationally renowned experts from Harvard
and Stanford Universities, and core content written by leaders in dozens of disciplines, CredibleMindPRO delivers more than 20,000 self-care interventions covering over 100 topic areas, continuously updated and refined through both machine learning and expert curation.
We help people flourish by optimizing their mental health, emotional wellbeing, and spiritual growth. We help people find the most appropriate evidence-based resources and interventions in a friendly, familiar, and accessible form. CredibleMindPRO, our enterprise offering, provides a localized engagement and navigation platform for mental health that enables employers, insurers, healthcare providers and community organizations to address population-based mental health.
