“Wondermind is not just for people who have been diagnosed with mental illness – it’s for those who have feelings,” Pearson said. “It’s for anyone that ever feels sad, lonely, scared, anxious and we’re not really labeling anyone.”
The platform provides resources, tools, practices and more to help clients improve their mental health.
“There are some places where people go when they need help, and it’s unfortunate that they spend a ridiculous amount of money,” Gomez explained. But [as with] There is a place for planned parenting, for women to feel right and understand, and I want it for mental health. I think it’s very important and I can’t stress enough how much I care and how much I really want people to understand, see and hear. “
Pearson further clarified that although Wondermind provides support resources, it is “not a substitute for a therapist.”
