We’re excited to share some recent updates to our site!
Shortly after launching this site in January, we reached out to mental health professionals, advocates, and friends asking for feedback. We asked about the design, usability, and function of our site. Our goal was to use their feedback to make our site as helpful and easy-to-use as possible.
Thank you to everybody who gave us feedback!
Here are some wonderful changes to our site that came from that feedback:
- There’s now an FAQ page! Here we explain how our directory works and give tips on how to do a good search.
- Our directory listings now have more information to help you decide if the resource is a good fit for you.
- Our crisis services link now goes to a blog post where we explain your options during a mental health crisis. We list some of our favorite crisis chat and phone services.
- The listing submission process is easier than ever! You no longer have to create an account to submit your resource. However, you’ll have the option to do so and we highly recommend it.
And here’s another huge change: we changed the cost criteria for services to be included in our directory.
Now, therapy services are eligible for our directory if they cost $30 or less per session (up from $20). This increases the number of affordable services that we can include and aligns better with what clinics are offering. It also closes a gap between our directory and the directory offered by Open Path Collective, where you can find therapy from $30-60 per session.
For apps, we have also clarified that they can be included in our directory if they cost no more than $10 for a one-time cost or for a monthly subscription.
Phew, that was a lot of updates!
Your feedback is very important to us. If there are still things that you think we could improve, please let us know with our contact form or DM us on Twitter (@therapy4theppl). Even if you feel it’s small, we want to hear about it!
We also love to hear what we’re doing well and if our site has helped you in any way. It’s nice to hear that we’re achieving our mission.
