ABOUT US

Our Vision

Therapists in Tech envisions a global community that promotes the development of ethical digital mental health leaders through authentic connections, upskilling, mentoring, training, and inclusion. We envision this global community facilitating change and creating a world where mental health professionals are successful, valued, and respected within corporate and start-up environments. 

 

Our Mission

The Therapists in Tech community offers support to mental health experts in tech to help them thrive. We help professionals make the transition to corporate and start-up life.


 

Our Values

Inclusion: We embrace diverse backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives. 

Empowerment: We promote the value of mental health professionals’ subject matter expertise and advocating for compensation parity.

Innovation: We believe in using technology to expand human connections, accessibility, and quality of care.

 

Leading with Science:We advocate for advancing and promoting the use of evidence-based research and ethical practice in tech mental-health.

 

Compassion: We practice respect, kindness, and empathy.

 

Growth: We encourage lifelong learning. 

Who We Are

Therapists in Tech is a community that fosters inclusive, authentic connections, amplifies marginalized voices and supports mental health professionals in tech roles to promote their clinical values, mental health, and ability to advocate for patient-consumers.  

Founded in 2020, we started with 100 thought-leaders from mental health and grew to 1000 + in a year.  

 

In 2022, Therapists in Tech attained status as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. This was a HUGE accomplishment because we believe in a community that is owned and operated by its members. A 501(c)(3) status also allows us to accept donations and sponsorship from our digital mental health partners, which is helpful to further develop programs to support our community. 

​We currently have a supportive community of over 2,000 members!


Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe a diverse, inclusive and equitable organization (or Alliance) is one where all members — regardless of gender, race, gender identity, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, education, disability, veteran status or other dimension of diversity — feel valued and respected.

We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and to providing equal opportunity for participation and advancement in all of our community programs.
