You:Flourish is a public benefit corporation balancing purpose and profit with the goal to bring wellness and affirming resources to members of the LGBTQ+ community. The You:Flourish smartphone application is created, curated and supported by Envision:You, a nonprofit organization that seeks to close gaps in behavioral health outcomes for LGBTQ+ individuals through co-created community programming, advocacy engagement, public awareness campaigns and evidence-based training.
Across the country, people are struggling to find a mental health provider. The National Alliance on Mental Illness states that 55% of U.S. counties do not have a single practicing psychiatrist, and 134 million people live in an area of the country that the U.S. government has designated as a mental health professional shortage area. AppIt worked alongside a team of wellness and behavioral health professionals to design and develop a mobile app that would serve the LGBTQ+ community in a new way. The You:Flourish app will offer access to vetted mental and behavioral health professionals for members of the LGBTQ+ community regardless of their location or financial situation. Additionally, the app will provide a virtual space for healing and wellness through a supportive network of peers and reliable information.
The You:Flourish project included the design and development of a mobile and a web app, as well as technology consulting. The You:Flourish app will address significant barriers head-on by finding vetted mental health professionals-helping the LGBTQ+ community to affirm their identity and life experiences with trained providers. Additionally, it will help them find powerful wellness content created by people in our community and provide a Resource Library that finds expert-vetted, community-informed, and identity relevant resources.
The You:Flourish mobile app is currently in development and is expected to launch in the spring of 2023. The You:Flourish leadership team has been featured in reputable media outlets, including (but not limited to) the Denver Business Journal and Built in Colorado.
