Below is our recent interview with Jake Ciccarelli, Director of Public Relations at The Inspired Company:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: The Inspired Company is a certified B-Corp (Benefit Corporation) dedicated to saving lives through technology, print, and film. Our CEO, Maggie Rose and passionate team, is motivated to extend affordable mental health treatment through our innovative app, Therapute, launching this November 20th, 2021.
After losing a close friend to suicide, Maggie Rose found herself struggling to cope and in need of mental health support. After finding a professional who was willing to see her for $10/session, she found herself switching majors to psychology where she realized the incredible need for the same opportunity she had- especially for college students. After founding a nonprofit organization dedicated to in person services at low to no cost, and the hit of the pandemic, the organization closed and The Inspired Company was born. The Inspired Company is dedicated to saving lives with fearless leadership, disruptive new approaches, and a renewed sense of urgency.
Conducting research and interviews with all aged individuals and professionals across state borders, we began to understand that the average American was unaware of the vast variety of mental health services that exist. People also did not know how to approach or receive responses from these professionals, and how to discuss working at lower sliding scales. This led us to create an app that is more than just therapy. We offer over 5 categories of mental health services from therapy, life coaching, psychiatry, counseling, mentorship, and more with low to no cost options, flexible and affordable sliding scale options, or hardship account opportunities. On the flip side, we wanted to focus on helping professionals manage their clients and private practice all in one place. With headache-free session requesting and scheduling, payment management, and so much more. Building and managing clients and patients has never been easier.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: · We offer more than just therapy and are the only app on the market that offers therapy, life coaching, psychiatry, counseling such as addiction counseling and more, mentorship, and more!
· Over 90% of our professionals offer sessions under $60
· 100% of our professionals are flexible and willing to work at a rate in which you can afford
· We opened our pre-registration for professionals 3 weeks ago and have hit over 1600+ qualified professionals across all 5 categories
· Professionals can manage everything from session request, calendar and upcoming appointments, payment management, and accessing new and current clients in one place.
Therapute is a mental health app set to launch this November 20 at our premier launch event in NYC. We are currently on route to have the largest variety of professionals available at a low to flexible rates and easy to navigate, send session requests and schedule, and manage payment in one place.
