Dr. Ryan Todd, headversity CEO and co-founder says heaversity’s focus on prevention and hands-on upskilling has been a key reason for its success.
“One of the many reasons headversity has emerged as a go-to solution for the workforce is its focus on prevention,” said Dr. Todd. “We’ve seen a market shift that impacted far more people acutely when it comes to mental health over the past few years, yet most programs in place are intervening when employees are in distress. Whether it be in person or a telehealth service, there aren’t enough counselors to meet the growing mental health demands today. Being able to scale our technology and give people the evidence-based training and tools they can work on independently, or in a team setting, we feel is the best way to meet the growing needs in the workplace. We are uniquely positioned in the industry in the prevention space and we’re grateful that it’s resonated with our partners and for the recognition of our growth as a result.”
