Supporting mental health and addiction recovery

While striking, unfortunately the following statistics are likely unsurprising: 23% of the U.S. population has a mental illness and 17% has a substance use disorder—but only half of those needing mental health treatment, and a quarter of those needing substance use treatment, receive it.

Enter Marigold Health, which offers an anonymous social network where people with mental health and substance use conditions support each other. The company’s AI-powered platform enables certified peer recovery coaches to reach and serve those most in need. Marigold works with providers as well as payers—typically Medicaid and Dual Eligible plans covering medically complex and vulnerable populations—providing 24/7 service to members.

Rock Health Capital is excited to announce our investment in Marigold’s $11M Series A, which we co-led with Innospark Ventures, alongside investment from Commonwealth Care Alliance, Wavemaker360, Stand Together Ventures Lab, Epsilon Health Investors, Koa Labs, VNS Health Plan and KdT Ventures. Learn more about how Marigold is expanding access to high-quality peer support.
