While California’s Valued Trust provides a robust set of resources aimed at our members’ physical health, we also recognize that mental health, emotional wellbeing and spiritual growth as all just as important. Because of this, CVT has partnered with CredibleMind, which is a safe, evidence-based first stop where our members can find solutions to a wide range of issues. It’s an upstream prevention tool that meets members where and how they like to learn.
More than half of adults in the U.S. identify as having a mental or emotional health challenge for which they want assistance. However, only a small fraction receives professional services. CredibleMind believes that everyone is entitled to the best information available that can help them flourish mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
To deliver on this vision, CredibleMind provides curated sets of the highest quality resources for you to explore the areas you are interested in. This is done by consulting recognized experts in their fields and by leveraging artificial intelligence technology. There are tens of thousands of resources available, but it is very hard to know what is high-quality and what will likely work for you. Studies show that 75%of people work on mental health issues by themselves rather than using professional treatment, but 95% of self-help resources have no scientific validity. CredibleMind is here to help you through this labyrinth.
Through the CredibleMind platform, you can:
- Search for resources in more than 100 topics, such as anxiety, depression, stress, sleep, meditation, and meaning and purpose.
- Find the kinds of resources that fit your learning style – apps, podcasts, videos, articles, books, and much more.

We hope you find CredibleMind valuable!
