  • Former Googler launches MyMind mental health service | Digital Times
    discovered that many people had difficulties accessing mental health services in Ireland The volume of searches relating to mental health support through Google s Irish search engine caught Fikert s attention He also noticed that many colleagues came up against a language barrier when trying to access mental health services in Dublin I found that time and time again people were coming up against barriers such as language cost and long waiting lists and I thought about how I could use my skills in psychology and technology to tackle these problems says Fikert In 2006 Fikert began offering free counselling services to the Polish community in Dublin city centre Demand for this service was high and the initiative grew at an incredible pace With support from grant funding and much hard work MyMind was born From serving 300 clients in its founding year MyMind now has four national clinics in Dublin Cork and Limerick with further expansion nationally and internationally on the horizon MyMind has impacted on more than 20 000 lives in Ireland to date In 2014 alone it provided more than 12 283 face to face services and supported a further 3 812 clients through its online services MyMind has a team of more than 85 mental health professionals offers counselling face to face online and in the workplace Fikert s team offers services in multiple languages for the rate of 50 per hour for full time workers 30 for part time and 20 for the unemployed and students MyMind is a social enterprise meaning that all revenue generated is reinvested into the organisation to make services accessible to everyone MyMind is a self referral model meaning that clients do not need to talk to their GP before accessing its services they can simply call or book an appointment directly online at mymind org and are typically seen within 72 hours One unique feature that makes MyMind stand out in the mental health sector is its online counselling services The e MyMind service offers clients free online platform where they can explore their options and completely manage their appointments online Online chat and email based guidance normalises access to mental health services which can be a daunting process for many first time appointment seekers MyMind also provides online consultations and counselling via video chat through Google Hangouts and Skype This means services are available to anyone seeking support no matter where they re living in Ireland It allows MyMind to broaden its client base and deliver a range of services to existing clients With our online counselling service for example we can reach those living in rural areas students struggling with the stress of exams busy new mums who can t leave the house or simply anyone who feels more comfortable having a counseling session in their own home says Fikert As it continues to grow MyMind has had developed key partnerships within the tech world from giants Google to Irish and global NGO supporters Enclude and Tech
