INSPIRED IMPACT™ is an ongoing blog series that gives voice to social entrepreneurs and leaders of purpose-driven organizations who are making an impact in their communities, industries, and around the world.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
We provide flexible office space for mental health and wellness professionals.
WHY DO YOU DO IT?
To increase accessibility and utilization of behavioral health services.
WHAT IMPACT ARE YOU MAKING?
We make it more affordable and less of a risk for mental health and wellness professionals to venture into their own private practice. In turn, we increase accessibility and utilization of these services.
WHAT (OR WHO) INSPIRES YOU TO MAKE THIS IMPACT?
As a former mental health professional, I knew first hand the struggles involved with entering into private practice. Something needed to change and I was inspired to be a part of this movement.
WHAT’S YOUR BIG DREAM FOR THE ORGANIZATION AND THE IMPACT YOU WANT TO MAKE?
To become a trusted brand for mental health and wellness services while also supporting the healthcare professionals on their own independent practice journey.
WHAT RESOURCES DO YOU NEED TO MAKE THOSE DREAMS COME TRUE?
We are in part a franchisor and therefore offer the opportunity to others interested in joining our movement to increase accessibility and utilization. Franchising offers us the resources to speed up our growth.
WHAT IS (OR HAS BEEN) YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
Entering into a very fragmented and broken aspect of healthcare has proven to be difficult while simultaneously serving as a huge opportunity that people are looking for.
WHAT WORDS OF ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER LEADERS LOOKING TO MAKE AN IMPACT?
Lean in and ask for help. No one person can do everything. It takes a community to move a community forward.
HOW CAN OTHERS SUPPORT YOU OR YOUR CAUSE?
Refer someone you know in need of mental health support. Share our website with a health care provider in search of a professional community or office space. Consider a franchise opportunity with us.
