Company Description
Mindoula Health (“Mindoula”) is a next-generation behavioral health management company that delivers tech-enabled 24/7 care extension and psychiatric services to populations with behavioral health challenges and medical co-morbidities across the continuum of care.

We launched Mindoula because each of us has had personal experience with mental illness, either directly or through a loved one. We realized that the behavioral health system was broken and decided to take it upon ourselves to fix it by focusing on the people we serve, not their diagnoses or symptom sets. Each of us, and everyone we serve, is a person first, and a set of challenges second. We address the full range of behavioral health challenges. We deploy tech-enabled teams of case managers, care managers, community health workers, peer support specialists, and psychiatrists to provide 24/7 support to even the most complex and underserved behavioral health populations. Our member engagement and predictive analytics technology platform has made the company a market leader in hospital re-admissions reduction, collaborative care, care coordination for the seriously mentally ill, and measurement-based psychiatry.

Mindoula Health is committed to the principles of equal employment. We are committed to complying with all federal, state, and local laws providing equal employment opportunities, and all other employment laws and regulations.
