We believe that access to mental healthcare should be a human right.

We’re partnering with “the best of the best” to make it happen.

The numbers are overwhelming.

  • Over 40 million Americans (1 in 5 adults) have a mental health condition
  • Suicide has become a leading cause of death in the United States
  • 45,000 lives were lost to suicide in 2016 alone
  • 56% of American adults with a mental health condition do not receive treatment

Access to care should be provided to everyone...

Regardless of their ability to pay.​

The Alive and Well Foundation is committed to ensuring that mental health services become a human right. To that end, we’re working with dedicated partners to make sure that all psychotherapists practice evidence-based care while providing support to every patient who needs it.

Four critical initiatives are the key to our success.

1

We’re training psychotherapists…

It is critical that patients have access to the best possible care. As a result, we are making evidence-based care training more accessible than ever.

  • We’re partnering with UiTrainings to create an online learning platform that features the best evidence-based trainers in psychotherapy today.
  • UiTrainings will certify psychotherapists and board certify them in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or MCBT, which is considered to be the most effective psychotherapy for treating a wide range of problems, including conditions like depression, anxiety, OCD, trauma, PTSD, addiction, anger, and insomnia.

We’re making evidence-based care a reality…

Evidence-based care is only as good as the treatment plans that are offered to certified psychotherapists. That’s why we’re partnering with Remote Therapy Partners.

  • By working with Alive + Well Therapy, we can offer certified psychotherapists advanced telehealth capabilities with a proven algorithm to ensure evidence-based mental health treatment plans are fully aligned with the most up-to-date recommendations in psychotherapy.
  • Therapists who utilize the Alive + Well Therapy Platform know they’re treating their patients with treatment plans based on the best thinking from the very best thinkers in psychotherapy.

3

We’re raising awareness…

People need to know that they’re not alone and that help is within reach.

  • We’re holding the Alive and Well Festival - a live-streaming series featuring top talent from the entertainment world and top names from the mental health profession - to make sure our message reaches a mass audience.
  • We’re partnering with Google Health to make sure people who need help, get help. People who search for mental health services will be directed to Alive and Well Certified Therapists by Google Health’s innovative “depression scanner.”

4

We’re raising funds…

The Alive and Well Foundation is a 501c3 company. Our work is supported by private and corporate donations and our goal for a program of this magnitude is truly ambitious.

  • We hope to raise $100,000,000 through corporate sponsorships, matching/general donation programs and “grassroots” donations to support and enable our efforts.
  • The Alive and Well Festival series will encourage grassroots donations to help us act where others have failed.

These four pillars are the foundation of an ecosystem that surrounds a powerful mental health advocate: The Global Health Crisis Coordination Center (GHC3).

The GHC3 is an organization that was tasked by the CDC Foundation to share information and coordinate resources between public health, private sector, and philanthropic organizations.

 

Mental health awareness is a key GHC3 initiative.

 

The Alive and Well Foundation is proud to partner with GHC3 to address the crisis of mental healthcare – a crisis that has been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our efforts include:

  • Working with Verizon to create a global hotline to provide free counseling for medical professionals who are experiencing a mental health crisis due to COVID-19.
  • Providing and promoting mental health resources to the general public through the Roslyn Carter Global Fellowship for Mental Health Journalism as well as through Public Service Announcements produced and distributed by our influencers and corporate partners, and through multiple global livestream events.

When people need mental healthcare, we will be there.

  • Our mission is clear: make mental healthcare accessible for everyone.
  • Our efforts are focused: raise awareness, raise funds, train psychotherapists, and make evidence-based care a reality.
  • Our network of support is remarkable.
