Your Story Matters.

What if we could address the mental health crisis

using the power of video storytelling?

StoryNow equips inspiring companies to solve important problems using the power of video storytelling, teamed with the latest technology.

Today’s mental health crisis is one of the most pressing problems in our world.

StoryNow can help you take it on.

The stakes are high in this unfolding story.

45%

Coronavirus negatively affecting mental health.

According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation study, 45% of Americans say COVID-19 has impacted their mental health. (kff.org)

1 in 4

Already struggling.

Prior to the pandemic, globally approximately 1 in 4 people have mental health struggles at some point in their lives. (World Health Organization.)

Racial trauma.

Minority groups have additionally experienced racial injustice, increasing emotional trauma. And POC historically have had less access to mental health support.

$1 Trillion

Lost productivity.

Depression and anxiety have cost an estimated $1 trillion per year in lost productivity worldwide.
(Panchal Et Al…,2020)

The challenges are even greater for

BIPOC.

According to the American Psychiatric Foundation, African Americans face barriers regarding access and quality of care including:

Stigma associated with mental illness

Distrust of the health care system

Lack of providers from diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds

Lack of culturally competent providers

Lack of insurance or underinsurance

“Only one in three African Americans who need

mental health care receives it.”

(Dalencour M, et al, 2017).

You want to support your employees. Now more than ever.

You want them to be engaged and encouraged. You desire them not to simply survive but heal, grow, and thrive in the midst of this crisis.

And as you care for your employees, you’re also helping your bottom line. 

“For every $1 put into scaled-up treatment for common mental disorders, there is a return of $4 in improved health and productivity.”

World Health Organization, 2019

Our North Star: Storytelling

Did you know? Story has the power to change our bodies + brains by…

Producing Healing Hormones

“Every time you tell your story and someone else who cares bears witness to it, you turn off the body’s stress responses…you release healing hormones like oxytocin, dopamine, nitric oxide, and endorphins.

-Dr. Lissa Rankin​

Calming the Nervous System

“[Telling your story] also relaxes your nervous system and helps heal your mind of depression, anxiety, fear, anger, and feelings of disconnection.”

-Dr. Lissa Rankin​

Growing New Pathways in the Brain

According to neuropsychiatrist, Dr. Daniel Siegel, when we participate in insightful storytelling our brain’s neural connections strengthen and we can even form new neural pathways. This enables us to move toward our future in more positive ways.

What makes it so effective?
