U.S. is experiencing a demand for mental health services as there is a shortage of mental health professionals
YUMA COUNTY, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - CredibleMind and the Yuma County Health District launched an online platform that provides mental health resources to the community.
Yuma County said CredibleMind consolidates expert-rated videos, podcasts, apps, online programs, books, and articles into a user-friendly interface.
The website is aimed to be a go-to destination for people who are looking for credible and curated mental well-being tools.
According to Yuma County, the platform is free to use, offers confidential and anonymous access 24/7, and allows users to explore, understand, and enhance their mental health.
It also has an extensive library that has thousands of resources where users can access information that covers over 200 topics including stress, burnout, anxiety, happiness, mindfulness, coping with medical diagnosis, and much more.
“With mental health identified as a top health priority in our latest community health assessment, we hope this platform is a way to help destigmatize mental health, and hopefully get these useful and readily available resources into the hands of those who need it most,” said Ryan Butcher, Communications and Community Engagement Coordinator at Yuma County Health District.
Yuma County said CredibleMind also offers assessments to provide personalized insights into mental health profiles.
Examples of their assessments are "Is it Job Stress or Burnout?" or "What's Your Meditation Style?" which empower users to gain deeper self-awareness and access resources to help them out in their mental health journey.
Yuma County said users can visit CredibleMind as a guest to take a look at its resources and don't need to create an account.
But by signing up on CredibleMind, users can access many benefits, tracking past assessment results, and favorite resources, and receiving handpicked selections directly via email.
