Our core values
We’ve always been guided by our values, since the earliest days of Foresight. And as a growing organization, we wanted to make sure they were accessible to all of our team members. These six values are both our guides for the day-to-day and aspirational as we expand our reach.
Foresighters, as we affectionately call our employees, are truly a diverse and inspired group. They approach their work with equal parts drive and empathy, know how to ask for help and give it freely, and embrace the opportunity every day to help connect people in need with the support they deserve.
We believe in sharing intentionally and openly with our teams, ensuring everyone has the necessary and supportive information to do their best work, independently and collaboratively. This quality of transparency at all levels of the organization is key to fostering trust and ongoing healthy working relationships.
Taking financial care of our organization ensures we can endure for the next generation of leadership and team members. Each of us has a responsibility to our members and each other to act reliably and as good stewards of our human and material resources.
We’re committed to behaving ethically and honestly in all aspects of our business. We’re ultimately accountable to our members and our purpose—improving access to high-quality mental health care. We strive to lead with sound judgment and principled decision-making that puts the good of the organization—and the people we serve—at the center.
Our intention is to positively influence the entire ecosystem surrounding mental health care, including improving reimbursement rates, eliminating regulations and laws that impede access to care, and advocating for the best possible outcomes for those with mental health needs.
We believe in cultivating an environment of dignity and respect for all individuals, whether employee or member. We recognize and celebrate our differences, and hold space to embrace our authentic selves at work, while engendering a sense of belonging and well-being.
Performing at the highest level of our professional license is paramount to being able to fulfill our purpose. When we show up for ourselves and each other, every day, bringing our best to what we do, we inspire those around us and contribute to our individual and collective growth.
How we started
Doug Hapeman and Matt Milford met in the College of Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. Enrolled in the same computer science classes, they’d hunker down in the library to study. In between working out academic problems, they’d have thoughtful conversations about how to work out problems of a larger scale and impact. Which is how they realized their shared passion for improving access to and elevating the quality of mental health care—challenges faced by so many throughout the country.
And so began their journey to create an organization that would help address not only access to mental health care, but how to make it more affordable. How to offer a better experience for those seeking it—including building a digital platform to support care, and hiring talented therapists and clinicians. And how to lessen the stigma for those seeking help.
