“I believe expanding access to care starts with using the best research evidence to broaden our vision of what mental healthcare looks like. At Appa Health, we are on a mission to improve the #mentalhealth of millions of teens through meaningful relationships. In a world where young people are feeling increasingly lonely and disconnected, Appa Health provides teens an opportunity to build a relationship with a caring, near-peer mentor with shared lived experience. Mentors meet with teens virtually and provide support and accountability as teens engage in evidence-based digital exercises to support their mental health.”
Our Breaking Barriers series is amplifying trailblazers in #behavioralhealth who have worked to expand access to mental health and substance use services through #innovation, #advocacy and/or new #technology.
