BOSTON, July 8, 2022 – The Wellness Council of America (WELCOA) and Archetype Solutions Group today announced Koa Health as a 2022 Well-Being Trailblazer Award recipient for its innovations in digital mental health solutions for employers and health plans.

The Well-Being Trailblazer Awards highlight the tech-enabled health and wellness vendors that bring exciting solutions to workplace well-being and positively impact employees’ ability to lead healthy, resilient and fulfilling lives. Well-Being Trailblazers excel in measurable impact, innovative vision, market leadership, and achievement and growth.

“We are honored and thrilled to be named as a leader in workplace wellbeing by WELCOA and Archetype. This achievement validates the growing global need for scalable mental health solutions and our call-to-action for organizations everywhere to build a culture where it’s ok to talk about mental health challenges and employees can easily get the support they need,” said Jennifer Gendron, Chief Commercial Officer at Koa Health. “The Well-Being Trailblazer award has reignited our commitment to providing highly accessible, easy-to-use, effective solutions to help people manage difficult emotions and symptoms of burnout, build resilience and perform their best at work and beyond.”

The company’s flagship product Koa Foundations targets the large portion of employees that fall within the “missing middle,”—those who need clinically-sound tools and support, but might not require or will never seek face-to-face care, reducing the friction with a digital approach and delivering expert-backed, personalized, evidence-based mental health programs. Ranked as the number one mental wellbeing app by expert mental health reviewers ORCHA and OneMind’s Psyberguide and boasting top user ratings across app stores, Koa Health’s solutions also received accolades for their industry-leading ethical framework, proven outcomes , built-in support to help managers and teams have conversations around mental health, identify symptoms of mental health challenges and how to direct employees to available resources.

The Well-being Trailblazer award ceremony will take place on August 30th at WELCOA’s annual summit at the Fairmont Millenium Park in Chicago.
