How SonderMind is making mental health more accessible when it's needed more than ever

Posted on 08/07/2020 by Austin Chamber

Mental health is an important part of overall health and wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It may also affect how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices in an emergency.

Chamber member SonderMind is changing the landscape of mental health care across Texas by using innovative technology to connect mental health clients with the right providers. Their team takes the burden off of the providers and patients seeking mental health support by matching them to the right fit of a licensed therapist based on their payment/insurance, location, schedule and specific concerns.

SonderMind is also a local community health partner.

"As more and more people speak openly about their struggles with mental health, the demand for accessible care soars. SonderMind is taking aim at these challenges with the unwavering support of the Austin Chamber community and our collective partners. Together, we will bridge community resources and align like missions that drive towards mental health access.
We believe in the value of the community in trying to accomplish our goal of redesigning mental and behavioral health and appreciate your help in achieving that."
