A BIT ABOUT US

We founded LinkMentalHealth to make mental health accessible, proactively and reactively. Over 60% of people struggling aren't getting the help they need with many not knowing where to turn to, sometimes leading to fatal consequences. We're leveraging technology to tackle a problem that many of us have experienced, whether for ourselves or a loved one. It shouldn't take months to find help, especially when there are resources out there that just aren't being used.

We're extraordinarily proud of what we've already been able to accomplish. We were the recipients of the 2019 International Social Innovation Award in Mexico, an award that attracted more than 1000 applicant ventures from 67 countries. Our team is our biggest competitive advantage- we are a team of individuals who bring a unique expertise to address an issue that impacts millions of lives.

THE OPPORTUNITY:

In our rapidly growing startup, you'll have a chance to practically see the impact you make in the core pieces of the website that you build and improve upon. You'll lead the process in development on the front-end changes of the website and work with others on the team to iterate and create the desired user flow. You’ll be a lead contributor to the back-end aspects of the platform- creating new features and improving existing piece.

You'll expand on the knowledge you’ve already accumulated, and most excitedly, learn additional ones to add to your skillset.

You'll also have the opportunity to lead a small team of front-end developers and designers to achieve milestones collectively, and learn from our other developers. You'll also see the day to days that exist to build a startup, and have the opportunity to learn skills outside of programming within your Learning Plan.

WHAT WE DO

LinkMentalHealth helps employers get their people the mental health services they need, in today’s modern world. We create an online portal and mental health hub for companies that makes accessing mental health services easy, and quick.

The online platform connects people to mental health services that best fit their needs (i.e. ethnicity, sexual orientation, specialty) and resources they have so they can actually pay for it. They’re then connected directly to the calendars of those therapists, shrinking process from months to minutes.
