Project Healthy Minds and Guaranteed Rate Partners raise more than $ 1.8 million to build a free digital mental health marketplace and democratize access to mental health services | Companies
NEW YORK – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Aug. November 2021–
Project Healthy Minds, a Millennials and Gen Z-driven mental health nonprofit, and Guaranteed Rate, a leading provider of residential mortgage loan and digital financial services, today announced that Guaranteed Rate 1,802. $ 391 was raised to help Project Healthy Minds. The funds raised will accelerate the development of Project Healthy Minds’ world’s first free digital mental health marketplace – and make it easier for Americans to find the help they need.
“In America 65 million people have been diagnosed with mental illness and 60% of them are not getting the help they need,” said Phillip Schermer, founder and CEO of Project Healthy Minds. “With the overwhelming generosity of Guaranteed Rate, Project Healthy Minds will be able to transform the mental health category and help tens of thousands of people find the life-saving psychological support they desperately need.”
Guaranteed Rate’s Mental Health Week was held November 15-19 as part of the ongoing #GuaranteedLove charity initiative. With the global coronavirus pandemic having a significant negative mental health impact, the mortgage lender wanted to focus on helping organizations working to meet the challenge.
“We chose to support Project Healthy Minds because they are developing technology to fill the mental health treatment gap by making it as easy for users to find help online as ordering an Uber,” said Victor Ciardelli, President and CEO of Guaranteed Rate.
The growing mental health crisis, which was epidemic before the pandemic, is now a key issue. Fifty-one percent (51%) of respondents to Project Healthy Minds’ 2020 Mental Health Survey said the pandemic has made it harder to get mental health services and support.
Guaranteed Rate’s Mental Health Week featured daily discussions with seasoned guest speakers and corporate ambassadors, including UFC Champion Rose Namajunas, pro golfer Patrick Cantlay, and Dr. Ray DePaulo, co-director of the Mood Disorder Center at Johns Hopkins and medical advisor to Project Healthy Minds. These live sessions addressed mental health issues such as diet, exercise and recreation, and mindfulness practices. Recordings of the meetings are available here.
The fundraising initiative has donated 100% of donations directly to mental health programs, with a guaranteed rate of $ 3 for every dollar donated. The effort raised funds for the Healthy Minds Project, as well as the Wounded Warrior Project and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
