Redesigning Mental Healthcare: A Conversation with Sondermind CEO, Mark Frank

Sign up today to attend our upcoming webinar on how Sondermind is redesigning mental healthcare to make it easier to find and access therapy. Their mission is to positively change behavioral healthcare by improving access, utilization, and clinical outcomes for its users.

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the use of telehealth services, expanding access to care for several common mental health disorders. A new study by Rand Corporation researchers published in JAMA Health Forum found that mental health services provided for some conditions were 10% to 20% higher by December 2020 than at the start of the year. This is where Sondermind comes in. They connect clients to matched therapists within their network, making it easier to bridge the gap between an individual’s mental health care needs and providers covered by their insurance. 

Join us to hear directly from Sondermind CEO, Mark Frank, on the company’s current developments and their experience working with Alumni Ventures. The conversation will be led by Managing Partner Catherine Lu. This webinar is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Alumni Ventures and one of our many portfolio companies.
