Our mission: eliminating every barrier to mental health.

Today, Spring Health equips over 800 companies, from start-ups to multinational Fortune 500 corporations, as a leading and preferred mental health service. Companies like General Mills, Guardian, Bain, and Instacart use the Spring Health platform to provide mental health services to thousands of their team members globally. We have raised over $300 million from prominent investors including Kinnevik, Tiger Global, Northzone, RRE Ventures, Rethink Impact, Work-Bench, William K Warren Foundation, SemperVirens, Able Partners, True Capital Ventures, and a strategic investor, Guardian Life Insurance. Thanks to their partnership, our current valuation has reached $2 billion.

Our Values
Members always come first
We serve multiple stakeholders, including providers, customers, and members. Most of the time, stakeholder priorities will be in alignment. Occasionally, we encounter difficult situations where there may need to be a tradeoff. In these situations, we prioritize members–they are the reason we exist and their wellbeing is our highest priority.
Move fast to change lives
We move quickly and intentionally to minimize suffering and do right by members. We make decisions courageously and swiftly, especially when those decisions are easily reversible. Knowing that work often fills the time allotted, we hold ourselves accountable to ambitious yet realistic timelines. We use the 80/20 rule and don't let perfect be the enemy of the good. 
Science will win
Spring Health embraces science at every stage  of our mission, from our beginnings with proprietary research published in a world-renowned, peer-reviewed journal to our recently published 
clinical and financial ROI studies. And yet science, for us, extends beyond clinical papers–it means relying on data, evidence, and validation as much as possible, versus making assumptions. Science, for us, means truly understanding the status quo so that we can meaningfully disrupt it.
Candor with care
We believe in the power of candor to promote clarity and reduce friction, confusion, and stress. We do not refrain from speaking truth–including speaking truth to power–and we aim to do so with care and positive intent. We speak up when we don't understand or agree with each other, and deliver feedback with empathy, kindness, and genuine concern for others. Even when honesty may feel uncomfortable, we are direct and transparent–but always with care. 
Embrace diverse teams and perspectives
Diversity makes us stronger. Whether its differences in background, perspective, ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, age, or religion, we go beyond just having diverse talent—we work intentionally to support and amplify diverse voices around a table. 
Take ownership
At Spring Health, we know that in order to fulfill our mission of eliminating every barrier to mental health, we must start by eliminating any barriers we encounter in our day-to-day work. When things don't go as planned, or when unexpected challenges come our way, we don't stop — we keep going. We are relentlessly resourceful, proactive, and creative, and we go beyond the call of duty. We are true owners.
