Early Findings

Summary

In our initial search, we provided the partners of Frontline Workers Counseling Project to complete row 3 of the attached spreadsheet. We also added a sources section to the spreadsheet to align the format with our guidelines for research. Our research for this hour was focused on identifying additional competitors in the United States frontline workers (essential workers) free/volunteer therapy services space. We provided 5 additional competitors in rows 9-13 of the attached spreadsheet Columns A-C. Please note that while Talkspace is not a non-profit, we included it due to the services they provide for frontline workers, please make a note if we should remove it from research and shift focus to only non-profits.
