GoodTherapy unites therapists and the general public through our leading therapy directory and by disseminating mental health news and information, challenging mental health stigma, and promoting ethical therapy.
- We envision a mental health community in which therapists and clinicians are guided by their hearts as much as their minds, have the self-awareness and courage to do their own therapy when appropriate, avoid using the people they treat to meet their own needs or abuse their power, adhere to ethical principles, and treat all people with the dignity and respect they deserve.
- We envision a mental health community in which clinicians view all people as capable of change. Far too often, people are seen as deficient and lacking what it takes to be healthy and happy. We work to eliminate this destructive trend. We encourage therapists to give people the benefit of the doubt by holding to the wisdom that people are born lovable, loving, and vulnerable beings, and to understand that people are shaped by their experiences and circumstances.
- We envision a world in which all people have access to information and treatment that can help them improve their mental and emotional health and achieve harmony, thus promoting healthier families and communities.
