Let’s eliminate the barriers to mental health care

Partners in transforming
mental health

The need for high-quality, accessible, and culturally relevant mental health care has never been more important, and we want to partner to meet that need for communities around the world.

We are a mission-driven not-for-profit organization and the creators of Stepped Care 2.0© (SC2.0), a revolutionary new methodology for organizing mental health services into a flexible system of care with open access to a range of resources and services. Our principle of open access gets people the care they need when they need it. We work in partnership with organizations and communities to implement the Stepped Care 2.0 model, removing barriers and ensuring that care is customized to their needs.

What is Stepped Care 2.0?

The SC2.0 methodology fundamentally re-imagines how mental health care systems can — and should — work to provide better care. Person-centric in its approach, SC2.0 focuses on the strengths of both individuals and communities and provides diverse options, recognizing that not one approach works for everyone. People will engage best and most with resources and support when they are ready and comfortable to do so. Both clients and providers engage in continuous feedback on progress, and collaborate on decisions about care, adjusting as needed.

“This is a bold, big plan for personalized population health. SC2.0 presents nothing less than innovative disruption in health care, extending the lead of the UK and others.”
