Molina Healthcare of Florida Partners with BeMe Health to Address Adolescent Mental Well-Being

MIAMI, Jan. 22, 2024 –  Molina Healthcare of Florida (“Molina”) and BeMe Health (“BeMe”) have teamed up to support over 22,000 Molina Medicaid member teenagers through BeMe’s behavioral health app. The app connects teens with customized mental health and well-being content, skill-building activities, and personalized one-on-one coaching. It also offers clinical services and crisis support.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (“NAMI”), 180,000 Floridians ages 12 to 17 have depression. NAMI data shows 64% of those adolescents did not receive any care in the last year. 

“Molina Healthcare of Florida is committed to supporting teen mental health and adding BeMe Health as a partner provides a great resource for our young members,” said Mike Jones, plan president of Molina Healthcare of Florida. “Having this technology available 24/7 allows teens to access help at their fingertips.”

In a recent assessment conducted in collaboration with Stanford University, 84% of users acknowledged BeMe’s positive impact on self-esteem, with 90% finding the platform’s content beneficial, and 84% expressing the effectiveness of BeMe’s coaching. A subsequent pilot evaluation showed users reported a 20% reduction in moderate or severe anxiety and an 11% decrease in moderate or severe depression.

“Collaboration is pivotal for positive outcomes in mental healthcare,” said Nicki Tessler, PsyD, MBA, CEO and co-founder of BeMe Health. “We couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with Molina Healthcare of Florida. Together, we can and will bolster mental health support to Florida teens.”
