Austin-based Speak As One, a non-profit startup founded by Julie Korioth, has launched a new line of subscription-based Mental Health Boxes. Julie’s goal with these boxes is to address the hard truth that America is ranked the third highest burdened country in mental health and behavioral disorders plus in the national average attempted suicide rate
Each month subscribers for the boxes will receive a package of curated items, tools on how to use them, resources, and a personal letter from a licensed therapist. The ongoing subscription boxes will be priced at $49.99 a month and will include a range of products to reduce anxiety, increase mindfulness, and promote peace and balance.
The company will also offer specialized boxes that are brought to life by influencers (professional athletes, musicians, actors/actresses) who share their stories on Speak As One and target specific life experiences and needs, priced from $59.99 each. Currently, the team is developing a First Responder Box, Veterans Box, Recovery Box, and an Athlete Box. Subscriptions to the boxes will be available here.
The company will also be hosting a variety of live events and sharing intimate mental health stories from all walks of life on the company’s YouTube page as well as their Instagram, Facebook and TikTok pages.
Additionally, Speak As One will innovatively partner with individual corporations. In this model, Speak As One interviews employees, provides videos for the company, and hosts private unplugged events focused on building local communities and removing the stigma of mental health. The collaboration will include monthly subscriptions for recipients of the company’s choosing.
As one of their first collaborations, Speak As One is creating a First Responders Box made possible by Storyteller Art Acevado to be released in conjunction with National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Further details to be announced.
In 2023, the company plans to host multiple community events throughout Texas in the coming year, with a national launch during SXSW in March. The events will consist of guest panelists, an open environment to connect with others who have similar experiences, live recording for those unable to attend, and the opportunity to purchase some of the Speak as One subscription-based product.
