Once you submit your application, our team will take no more than two days to three days to review your qualifications and group. If you are approved, you will receive an email where you can begin creating your group. Please keep an eye on your Spam and Promotions folder for this email after you apply.
While we look for experienced and licensed health and wellness professionals with a background in Psychology, Psychiatry, Naturopathy, General Medicine Acupuncture, Physical Therapy, and Nutrition, we also welcome applications from Certified Wellness/Life Coach, Certified Peer Group Specialists, and Experienced Educators (Teacher). We will also consider applications from survivors as well.
We accept qualified individuals even if they have never facilitated a peer support group in the past. We have a resource library and support team to help those who lack the experience but are interested in running a group.
No. The MentalHappy platform is a third party intermediary between individuals who facilitate the groups and individuals who are members of groups.
There are no minimum time commits. But Leaders who commit more time may make more revenue due to member retention and group growth.
Yes, you can turn your group to "private" when you are at capacity and only accept new members based on your availability.
While your group will be discoverable to members within the MentalHappy app, Group Leaders are expected to promote their own groups as well.
Peer support sessions are virtual sessions where the Leader facilitates a live session with members. These sessions can be closed to just your group members or open to all members of the MentalHappy platform. We encourage Leaders to host at least two sessions a month.
This depends on how much you charge for your group. A support group of 75 members charging $20 per month could earn up to $1,500 a month or more.
Our Support Group Leaders set their own rate, choose their own hours, and have the freedom to facilitate their group as they see fit. We also offer continued support to ensure our Leaders feel safe, happy, and comfortable on the platform.
We charge a flat 10% fee from their monthly earnings on the app, and professionals can set their own subscription price for access to their groups. There are no additional or hidden costs.
