The "Why" Behind the InDependent Wellness Directory?


Your programming only goes so far...

Organizations are created to provide specific programming to meet targeted needs within the service community.  Yet it is impossible to meet all the needs of a family- especially a service family.   Most organizations are not set up to offer intensive mental health care or have the confidence to find trustworthy referrals- and it can feel like your reputation is on the line. 

Corie Weathers, military spouse clinician and service organization consultant, discovered this dilemma as she spent endless hours searching for culturally competent providers that families could be referred to for more intensive care.  What she also found was military spouses and veteran providers that desperately wanted their businesses more visible. 

The InDependent Wellness Directory, formerly the Lifegiver Directory, was created as a win-win for all.

How does it work?

– Wellness professionals register for an account and set up their profile- putting their business on the map.

– Wellness professionals are required to enter in license/certification and experience that is verified by InDependent and available for families and individuals that are considering their expertise.

– Service families, individuals, and organizations use the map with all of its searchable features to locate culturally competent professionals to connect with.

– Service families are empowered to reach out and choose wellness professionals that they want to work with. Our directory doesn’t just connect them with a name and a specialty, but also tells the wellness professional’s why behind serving our community.

How you can help

Our goal is to find and list as many competent wellness professionals as possible and make the directory a successful, comprehensive search engine for all wellness needs. By partnering with InDependent, Inc, your organization is willing to:

– Use the directory when looking for wellness professionals and referrals for service families

– Point wellness professionals and service families to the directory, and

– Allow InDependent, Inc, to use your logo and any information you provide about your organization to communicate to wellness professionals and families.
