Wellnite, is mental health startup based in San Francisco whose mission is to provide high-quality mental healthcare services to everyone regardless of zip code or insurance coverage.
We know that many people don’t get the help and resources they need when it comes to taking care of their mental health. We also know that mental health is one of the most overlooked areas in health care. Which is why Wellnite was created. To solve a national problem by eliminating the most common barriers such as high cost, stigma, and accessibility.
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects who we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, related to others, and make choices (6).
Everyone will go through circumstances that will challenge their mental health. That is almost a fact. But learning how to manage the stresses of life can really make the difference. Which is why you should check us out at Wellnite.
10 Reasons Why You Should Join Wellnite
We are the most affordable mental healthcare platform — We make it affordable because trust us, we know the health care system in America isn’t the best (see blog post, "Going For Broke: The United Healthcare System of America"). But we wanted to provide a solution to the most common problem: affordability.
We are a passionate start-up — We maybe just a small start-up but our highest priority is solving the world’s biggest problem. Our team is comprised of individuals around the world who are strong advocates of mental health. We take our work very seriously. But not too serious because we like to have our fun too :) #workhardplayhard
The Co-founders (Elisa&Paulo) are just like you — Two ambitious entrepreneurs: Elisa, a brilliant boss-lady from Burma and Paulo, a dashing lad from the beautiful islands of Canary (or the Canary Islands). Both had suffered from anxiety and depression and coming from their respective countries they found that the cost of getting help for their mental health was not an option. This is why they started Wellnite: To make mental health care affordable and accessible to everyone, everywhere regardless of zip code or insurance coverage.
We help treat depression and anxiety — Depression is the leading cause of disability in the United States. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders in the world. We help with both :) (See blog posts, "What Is Depression? And Do I Have It?" and "Is It Shyness? Or Is It Social Anxiety?".)
We personalize your treatment plan — We recognize that an individual’s mental health is not one size fits all. We don’t treat an individual with depression the same we would another with the same condition. Everyone is different. Everyone has different circumstances. Everyone has different situations. But what we aim to do is to listen and provide you a treatment plan that will work just for you.
