Antidote Health has partnered with NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo's Charles Antetokounmpo Family Foundation (CAFF) for a $1 million investment in mental health services in Milwaukee.
My family’s path to the United States wouldn’t have been possible without the kindness of others.
With the goal of offering free telehealth mental health care services to the people of Milwaukee, delivered by board-certified physicians, Antidote Health provides treatment for the seven most common mental health conditions:
- Major Depressive Disorder (MDD Depression)
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
- Panic Disorder (including Panic Attacks)
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Insomnia Disorder
Mental health support for Wisconsin
Highlighting how one in five adults in the U.S. experience mental illness each year, the collaboration between Antidote Health and CAFF is especially needed in Wisconsin, where according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 859,000 adults, roughly three times the population of the state capital of Madison, have a mental health condition.
The data also highlights that Wisconsinites are four times more likely to be forced to go out-of-network for mental health care than for primary care, making it harder to find care and incur higher out-of-pocket costs. Additionally, out of the 266,000 Wisconsin adults who did not receive mental health care last year but needed it, 37,3% said it was due to cost.
“I believe that by investing in others, we unlock their true potential, regardless of their origin, race, color or faith. That’s why I’m delighted that CAFF and Antidote Health have come together to provide mental health care services to those in-need. It’s another great way we can give back to this community that has given us so much,” added Antetokounmpo, who is also a CAFF ambassador for Antidote Health.

‘Leave No One Behind’
Within the framework of the Leave No One Behind campaign, eligible Wisconsin residents will receive free mental health care treatment delivered via telehealth with a board-certified physician.
Free services in the program include:
- Clinical diagnosis
- Medication administration and follow-up visits
- $30 per month of assistance with out-of-pocket costs on medications
Registration will remain open until full capacity is reached.
“Antidote Health and CAFF are bound by a shared commitment to provide affordable healthcare to all, regardless of race, location or circumstance. By leveraging CAFF’s support and providing our leading mental health care to the people of Milwaukee—the city Giannis himself calls home—at no cost through Antidote’s platform, we are getting incrementally closer to realizing that common goal,” said Avihai Sodri, co-founder and chief executive officer of Antidote Health.
