SilverCloud Health and Wiley Launch the New Gold Standard for Online Behavioral Telehealth Solutions in the US

Silvercloud Health Limited and Wiley announced the official launch of the new Gold Standard in evidence-based online therapy with the ‘Space from Anxiety’ and ‘Space from Generalized Anxiety Disorder programs. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting roughly 40 million people at a cost of more than $42 billion a year. Accessing effective care continues to be a growing challenge with a national ratio of one provider to every 790 individuals, and one-fifth of those affected do not receive mental health services needed. Additionally, for 45% of individuals, cost is a barrier to effective care with out-of-pocket costs for outpatient treatment reaching $5,000. The new Gold Standard is leveraging Wiley’s library of content along with the clinical expertise from U.S. behavioral health experts including Dr. Stefan G. Hofmann, Professor of Psychology, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Boston University, and Dr. Deborah C. Beidel, Professor of Psychology and Medical Education, Department of Psychology, University of Central Florida. Together they are delivering evidence-based telehealth programs on SilverCloud Health’s technology platform built on over a decade of peer-reviewed research. The new HIPAA-compliant programs build on SilverCloud Health’s existing program suite, proven in clinical practice to allow healthcare organizations to increase engagement and reach six times more individuals, while delivering outcomes equivalent to face-to-face treatment.
