WellRight Partners with Marquee Health to Remove Barriers to Mental Health Support

Animo and TextCoach™ make mental health support more accessible to employees and members.

Chicago, IL (December 15, 2020): Starting today, WellRight clients can take advantage of two exciting new digital mental health solutions, thanks to a partnership with Chicago-based health and wellness company, Marquee Health. The two products, Animo and TextCoach™, provide comprehensive, real-world, and accessible mental health support to wellness program members on a highly-secure, as-needed basis.

“Two of the biggest barriers to mental health care are stigma and access to resources,” says Tad Mitchell, president and CEO of WellRight. “By offering digital pathways to care, employees and members can bypass those obstacles and receive support immediately, privately, and when they need it.”

Animo is a computerized cognitive behavioral therapy (cCBT) app that measures emotional fitness, offering dynamic training modules to help employees manage problems like anxiety, depression, and stress in a results-oriented manner. Specific benefits include:

  • Development of practical skills and coping strategies
  • Anytime-access to mental health resources
  • Pre- and post-assessments to track improvement
  • Dynamic, private environment for those unlikely to seek help

Textcoach™ is a convenient and stigma-free messaging platform that connects employees with a licensed mental health professional to address stress, anxiety, grief, depression, isolation, or relationship issues–or to proactively work on mindfulness, coping skills, or resiliency. Specific benefits include:

  • Accessibility at any time, on any device, without having to schedule around conflicts
  • Independently-licensed clinicians with a special accreditation for providing technology-based care
  • Encrypted and securely stored communication between participants and coaches
  • Stigma-free resource for those unreceptive to ‘traditional’ face-to-face or distance counseling

“When you combine the isolation and stress that today’s employee deals with on a daily basis, the need for easily accessible mental health support is more critical than ever,” says Jonathon Short, president of Marquee Health. “These products make it easier and more convenient for them to access care.”
