BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Get Well, a global digital health company, today announced a partnership with Health Journeys, the leading publisher of medically endorsed guided imagery and meditation audios to provide its programs to Get Well’s entire client base.
With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, Get Well is thrilled to share this partnership — furthering its commitment to deliver personalized care. Health Journeys is the only offering that targets specific behavioral health challenges service members face, including anxiety, sleep deprivation, burnout, chronic pain, depression, anger, PTSD, grief, addiction, traumatic brain injury, and injury rehabilitation.
Through this new partnership, Health Journeys’ guided imagery will be made available to Veteran patients — a population that disproportionately experiences behavioral health conditions. This partnership builds on Get Well’s work with the VA and advances the company’s commitment to serving Veterans and service members in need of behavioral health services, ensuring they have full access to the highest quality of care.
The percentage of adults with recent symptoms of anxiety or a depressive disorder has recently increased to 41.5%, and the percentage of those reporting an unmet behavioral healthcare need increased to 11.7%. However, empowering people with self-management tools, like guided meditation, is key to improving mental health.
Through the partnership, hospitals and health systems (including VA hospitals) employing Get Well will be able to provide their patients with access to Health Journeys’ full catalog of meditations.
“We are constantly looking for better ways to empower users with self-management healing tools that help build resilience and reinforce motivation for healthy behavior changes,” said Jonathan Goldsmith, COO for Health Journeys. “Through this partnership with Get Well, Health Journeys will be more accessible to the patient groups that need it most, like our Veterans, to improve the outcomes and quality of life, offering gentle, yet powerful techniques that focus on imagination in proactive, positive ways.”
Health Journeys’ evidence-based guided meditations have been implemented in every branch of the Armed Services, at home and abroad, and in more than 90 Veterans Affairs Medical Centers nationwide and has proven beneficial in helping patients manage common health conditions such as diabetes, as well as with issues such as pain and smoking.
“Addressing the behavioral health needs of patients is such an invaluable part of delivering high-quality, whole-person care,” said Michael O’Neil, founder and CEO of Get Well. “Our goal is to provide the tools and solutions that take the humanity of patients and the systemic challenges they face into account and better serve people in need of behavioral health services.”
