Prodana is a platform that empowers mental health practitioners to help more people. Collect contributions from past clients, current clients, and the community, while making yourself accessible to people in need.
Mental health practitioners create a profile page allowing individuals to both book appointments with them and to support their work.
The profile transparently displays how much support the practitioner has received, and how many appointments they have completed.
Support can come from their community, from strangers, or from past or current clients. There is no transactional correlation between someone getting help and someone supporting the practitioner.
Mental health and emotional struggles are often part of a perfect storm of difficult physical circumstances, limited financial resources, and a lack of interpersonal support.
The private sector typically still offers the best solutions, but is often unattainable at the time to a person in crisis.
People would pay more than their therapist’s fees if they knew it was going to help multiple other people.
Clients who can’t pay full rates can still subscribe to a smaller monthly contribution which they can make for years.
Individuals whose fortunes have improved can turn around to support others long after their own treatments have ended.
The process of personal growth is a private and personal one. Giving in this field is ideally done with this same sensitivity. Reports of hours spent in service, as well as anonymized anecdotes of successes and breakthrows, are all we need to find meaning in our giving.
