Co-Founder & CEO, Co-Founder & COO, MindBar
Austinites Hailey O’Neill and Barbara Nadalini-Priesnitz believe that if everyone could afford therapy, the world would be a better place. But everyone can’t, and it’s a problem. Together they created MindBar, a mental health club built on the idea that self-care is a necessity, not a luxury. MindBar’s no-contract membership is $99/month. It and offers unlimited access to more than 40 hours/month of live online peer support groups, meditation classes, guided visualizations and self-help book clubs, as well as in-person member socials. Members also get 50% off series: eight-session deep-dive workshops on topics like body image, sexual ethics, solopreneurship, diverse wellness and more. MindBar isn’t therapy and isn’t meant to replace therapy or medical treatment for mental health. MindBar is there to fill the gap. It teaches tools for personal growth in a safe space for people to alleviate stress, foster emotional intelligence and create connection.
