Lexipol, the leader in policy, training and wellness support for first responders and public servants, recently announced that its wellness app, Cordico, was named a 2022 SIIA CODiE Award finalist for Best Wellness Solution. CODiE finalists represent the best products, technologies and services in software, information and business technology.
Research shows that first responders experience significantly higher-than-average rates of critical incidents, often leading to mental and behavioral health issues such as depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety and PTSD. Coupled with the stigma around mental health that exists across the public safety sector, first responders often cannot access the resources needed to effectively recognize and address these wellness concerns.
The Cordico wellness solution, which includes a confidential app and online wellness courses, seeks to help address this problem with resources tailored to the needs of public safety. It is designed to provide critical support to help first responders learn about the behavioral health issues they face, build and maintain resilience, and connect with therapists and peer support team members.
“We are honored to be named finalists in this competitive field of wellness innovation,” said Cordico president Dr. David Black. “With Cordico, we want to support first responders who often focus on the wellness of those around them while pushing aside their own self-care and well-being.”
The SIIA CODiE Awards are produced by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software, education, media and digital content industries. Cordico was picked as one of 137 finalists across 43 business categories in a talent-packed field of nominees.
“The 2022 CODiE Award finalists highlight the products and people who drove their industries forward through innovative products and leadership in these uncertain times,” said SIIA President Jeff Joseph. “These honorees continue the proud tradition of CODiE Award finalists of recognizing the most impactful products, services and leaders of their time, setting a foundation for the next generation of innovators. Congratulations to all who received this well-earned acknowledgment.”
The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-recognized awards program. Finalists are determined by industry experts.
