Why Should You Join the Lifegiver Directory?

Because connection is what everyone is looking for

Your programming only goes so far...

Organizations are created to provide specific programming to meet targeted needs within the service community.  Yet it is impossible to meet all the needs of a family- especially a service family.   Most organizations are not set up to offer intensive mental health care or have the confidence to find trustworthy referrals- and it can feel like your reputation is on the line. 

Corie Weathers, a military spouse clinician and service organization consultant, discovered this dilemma as she spent endless hours searching for culturally competent clinicians that families could be referred to for more intensive care.  She found that in addition to the struggle to find clinicians that are trained to work with service families, there were also military spouses and veteran clinicians that desperately wanted their practice to be visible.  This is where the Lifegiver Clinician Directory was created. 

How does it work?

  1.  Clinicians register for an account on the Lifegiver site and set up their profile- putting their practice on the map.

  2. Clinicians are required to enter in license numbers and experience that can be vetted by Lifegiver or families that are considering working with them.

  3. Families and organizations use the map with all of its searchable features to locate culturally competent professionals to connect with.

  4. Families then have the responsibility to reach out and choose professionals that they want to work with.

What is asked of you?

The great news is that the Lifegiver Clinician Directory provides a service to organizations and service families while meeting the needs of clinicians as an outreach tool. Therefore, clinicians pay the minimal fee of $10 per year to list their profile.  

In order to find and list as many competent providers as possible and make the directory truly a successful search engine, clinicians must feel that families and organizations are willing to utilize it.  By partnering with the directory, your organization is simply willing to:

  • use the directory,

  • point families to it when they are looking for clinicians,

  • and allow the directory to use your logo to communicate to clinicians that it is supported.  

That’s it. No funding. No asks.

What you get

Clinicians that register on the Lifegiver Directory have access to their own personal Clinician Dashboard.  There, partnering organizations can have information about their programming, links to websites, and any other opportunities they want shared with clinicians.  It is great marketing, connects you to more families, as well as the mental health community that is always looking for resources.

Good for you.  Good for clinicians.  Good for your families.  Its a win-win-win. 

Service Families

Military and first responder families are under an immense amount of pressure. Finding high quality help is difficult when you don't know what you are looking for. The Lifegiver Directory makes this step easy. Families looking for hope are able to search for culturally competent clinicians easily as well as organizations that support them. Families can search for providers that are military spouses, veterans, first responder spouses, and even by insurance.

Clinicians

Clinicians rarely get training in business, outreach, and marketing in their degree programs. Finding the clients you are passionate to serve can be challenging. The Lifegiver Directory makes the clinician's practice visible to service families that trust the process and values of the Lifegiver brand. Lifegiver also partners with larger organizations that work with service families who are always looking to refer to culturally competent providers giving them extra visibility.

Service Organizations

Non-profits, businesses, and other organizations that work with service families want to be fully focused on programming and services, many of which do not include therapy or intensive treatment. These organizations want to ethically direct service families who need this level of care to competent professionals without changing their programming. By utilizing and referring their families to the Lifegiver Directory, everyone wins.

Opportunities for Growth

Continuing education is always a concern for licensed professionals. Lifegiver partners with organizations that offer continuing education and other training that can build the clinician's portfolio and help them carve a more credible niche to treat service families- simply by joining the directory. The Clinician Dashboard features service organizations as well as opportunities of interest to clinicians.

Telehealth is now searchable

Directories, including insurance companies have been trying to figure out a way to make telehealth searchable. Lifegiver understands that telehealth is the modern way to provide services anywhere in the state. Telehealth makes it possible to expand a clinician's practice and for many active duty military spouse clinicians, makes their career portable. The Lifegiver directory not only allows clinicians to categorize as a telehealth provider in their practice listing, it provides an additional FREE Telehealth list for providers to be listed.
