The Verywell Mind Online Therapy Awards are the most in-depth analysis of digital therapy services to date – based on over 300 data points collected, across 33 services, and a survey of nearly 3,500 therapy users in line. The evaluation was led by Amy morin, LCSW, Editor-in-Chief of Verywell Mind, and Rachel berman, SVP and GM, in partnership with Marie Tatum, MS, LMHC. The award categories recognize that there is not one type of therapy that is right for everyone, with 18 winners in 20 categories including Best for BIPOC, Best for Group Therapy, and Best for Low Cost.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, teletherapy became a lifeline for people who did not have access or did not have the resources for in-person therapy,” Berman said. “As one of the largest mental health sites we see the need for care every day, so we decided to launch the world’s first online therapy awards to recognize innovation and provide a clear next step. to those looking for help. “

“The need for therapy is at an all time high, especially during a year of great loss, uncertainty and isolation,” said Morin. “Technology has helped change the way people access therapy, removing difficult barriers for those seeking support. In the absence of comprehensive prior space reviews, Verywell Mind wants to fill this void so that people can find the services that best suit their individual circumstances. ”
