Waffle partners with BetterHelp
We're excited to announce our new partnership with BetterHelp, the world’s largest online therapy service. This partnership will allow us to further expand our emotional health support beyond group journaling.
Taking care of mental health has become more important than ever, particularly among younger adults. Research indicates that feelings of loneliness and isolation are strongly linked to conditions such as depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems.
At Waffle, we believe that fostering strong bonds between people is the key to better mental health because sometimes, all we need is simply to feel a sense of belonging and understanding from those around us. We do this with a unique approach - group journaling.
Ever since we launched, we've been helping diverse groups - families, couples, counselors, students, and even work and sports teams - helping them connect, bond, and share emotional support through group journaling. Waffle has grown into a space where people can form deep and meaningful bonds with those who matter most to them.
Increasingly, we've seen Waffle users integrating Waffle into their therapy sessions and actively seeking therapeutic support. The number of therapists incorporating Waffle into their practice is also growing.
From our ongoing discussions with Waffle users, we've come to understand that the need for counseling is vast and far from being fully met. There are many people who desperately need more support, but are not receiving enough.
That's why we partner with BetterHelp, the largest online therapy platform. This partnership allows us to broaden our approach to mental health, bringing us a step closer to our mission of enhancing overall emotional health.
