Mental health concerns have skyrocketed during the pandemic. Unfortunately, many people do not get the help they need because there is a strong desire to get better on your own and they hold negative beliefs about therapy/mental illness (stigma). Even if they want to get care, the cost of sessions and the lack of providers makes getting evidence based care challenging. These barriers can be especially pronounced in workplace settings.


Mood Lifters for Organizations

Mood Lifters is a revolutionary, highly cost-effective approach to improved mental wellness that addresses the shortcomings of traditional and digital health approaches. Our program empowers participants to change their own lives, addressing their desire to improve on their own.

The leaders are peers who have themselves completed the program, reducing the stigma of seeking help. And, participants report decreased perceived stress, anxiety and depression. There is far less stigma associated with attending a peer group session (in fact, our members often call it “class”) that provides social support and human connection, which is lacking in one-to-one sessions or mobile app approaches.
