Supportiv, The Peer Support Network, Welcomes EAP Industry Veteran William Taylor, LPCC, NCC as Vice President, Strategic Partnerships

Will Taylor’s combined experience in mental health counseling, provider management and EAP administration gives him an empathetic advantage in interpreting and responding to the needs of our partners.

William Taylor, LPCC, NCC, takes on a new role developing partnerships and leading program implementation as a dedicated point of contact for Supportiv (, the on-demand peer-to-peer support network serving 2.5 million people covered and over 700,000 people to date.

As Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, Will brings ten years of clinical, managerial and executive experience, accumulated in community-based non-profit and for-profit mental health and behavioral health organizations. His background includes clinical experience as a Chartered Professional Clinical Advisor and Certified National Advisor, supporting clients throughout program implementation at Claremont EAP, and most recently as Vice President of Operations at Uprise Health ( formerly Integrated Behavioral Health), an EAP serving over 7 million people with covered lives.

Will shares his enthusiasm for creating collaborative partnerships and making mental health care accessible: “Having immediate access to services is something that fascinates me enormously. It is clear to me that accessible mental health services are essential outside of a clinical setting. Supportiv’s approach to digital peer support connects people with the right people and the right resources at the exact moment they need them, driving positive results.

More generally, I like to remove barriers to help people meet their needs, whether they are business partners or underserved people.

Supportiv CEO Helena Plater-Zyberk comments on what makes Will such a remarkable addition to the team: the partners. He has been on the other side of the implementation of the program, and his sense of compliance and his skills in securing community buy-in will make him an invaluable partner in our strategic implementations.

Co-Founder Pouria Mojabi adds, “Will’s flexible leadership style and experience-based knowledge will help Supportiv continue to grow and democratize access to human connection and mental health support.

Even experiences regarding disability, stigma and discrimination are open to discussion in Supportiv’s anonymous peer support chats.
