Editorial Process

We understand that trust must be earned, which is why we’re eager to share how Weshapesoul crafts accurate, clear, up-to-date, and actionable content.

Content Creation

Weshapesoul’s editorial and medical teams are dedicated to producing top-quality content and experiences, adhering to the highest journalistic standards. We aim to offer comprehensive, unbiased, honest, and timely guidance and actionable next steps.

Medical Review

Weshapesoul’s clinical and pharmaceutical content is meticulously reviewed by a team of medical professionals or verified by seasoned journalists to ensure accuracy. Our medical review team boasts expertise across diverse specialties, with substantial experience in clinical practice, research, and patient advocacy.


Weshapesoul meticulously evaluates all prospective mental health and wellness writers. We ensure our content creators possess both subject matter expertise and pertinent life experience. They receive training on research and sourcing best practices, along with regular feedback and continuous coaching.


We adhere to stringent sourcing guidelines, relying on peer-reviewed studies, academic research institutions, government agencies, and medical associations. Each article undergoes thorough research, with sources meticulously vetted to ensure they are current, authoritative, and objective. Primary sources, such as studies, scientific references, and statistics, are linked within the text or listed in the resources section at the end of our articles.


The way we think about and address mental health is constantly evolving. New research emerges outdated ideas are debunked, and terminology gets updated. Diversity and inclusivity are integral to our editorial strategy from the outset. We strive to provide a safe, compassionate, and understanding space for readers to explore their mental health journey.

At Weshapesoul, we rigorously monitor and update our content to ensure it is medically accurate, compassionate, and inclusive. Our editors and experts focus on identifying and revising inaccurate, outdated, or unclear information.

Our Weshapesoul Advisory Board, composed of several clinicians specializing in mental health, helps us stay informed about new research and treatments. These advisers also serve as key references for our editors when creating articles and content packages.

Our Medical Integrity team tracks changes in standards of care, new clinical guidelines, drug approvals or recalls, and major practice recommendations. They share these insights with our editors and partners to ensure our content reflects the latest, most accurate, and useful information.

You may notice several dates on our content, each representing a different step in our editorial process:

  • “Written on” date: When the content is originally written and published.
  • “Medical review” date: When reviewed by an expert in our Medical Network.
  • “Fact-checked” date: When verified by our professional fact-checkers.
  • “Updated on” date: When modifications, such as correcting inaccuracies, adding new information, or replacing images and sources, are made to improve the content’s value for you, the reader.

We update and re-review our content through several ongoing processes:

  • Regular audits: We perform regular content audits to address changes in language, medical terminology, and health community trends.
  • Annual brand vetting: We reevaluate brands yearly and update any content referencing those brands to reflect changes in their performance against our criteria.
  • Timely updates: Our news team monitors developing stories and publishes timely updates on the most important mental health news of the day.
  • Immediate action from feedback: We invite reader feedback and take immediate action to address potential issues. When alerted to inaccuracies, outdated information, or unclear content, our editorial and medical teams research the feedback, determine necessary revisions, and update the content accordingly.

Our approach to product selection

We understand that trust must be earned, which is why we’re transparent about how Weshapesoul evaluates and selects the products featured in our content. Our goal is to produce balanced and objective content. To achieve this, we ensure a clear separation between our editorial and business teams throughout the creation process of product reviews, roundups, and articles with shopping links.

How We Create Content with Links to Products and Services

We know trust is earned, so we’re happy to share how Weshapesoul creates content with links to vetted products and services.

Finding health and wellness information is easy, but finding trustworthy and usable information can be overwhelming.

Weshapesoul is changing that.

We’re making high-quality, evidence-based health information understandable and accessible so you can make the best decisions for yourself and your loved ones. We’re also committed to creating experiences that help you live your healthiest life.

Our health and wellness editors may include links to relevant products they find useful for our readers.

We lead with integrity

We add product links only when they meet a need or add value to our readers.

As health and wellness become more commodified, we carefully distinguish between products and services that offer real value and those that don’t.

All our content, including product reviews, roundups, and articles with shopping links, is created editorially independent. We maintain a clear separation between our editorial and business teams. Our strict advertising policy ensures sponsors and partners never influence our content.

How we select products

Our editorial team spends hours analyzing data and reader feedback to understand what you’re looking for — whether it’s a good online therapy service, the best meditation apps, or book recommendations for kids with anxiety.

We research and vet products and brands based on our criteria for quality, accessibility, cost, and availability to bring you valuable recommendations. Our goal is to create balanced and objective content that clearly highlights the pros and cons of the products and provides transparent pricing information.

If we share something that hasn’t passed our vetting process, we’ll explain why so you can make an informed decision. We also consistently reevaluate all brands that partner with Weshapesoul to ensure they continue to meet our standards. If a product or brand no longer meets our standards, we’ll remove it from our site.

If you purchase after clicking one of our links, Weshapesoul may receive a small share of the revenue. This revenue supports our independent editorial process and helps us create content aimed at a stronger, healthier world. No editorial staff or Medical Network contributors receive commissions from these purchases.

When we develop direct business partnerships with brands or retailers, our Medical Affairs team validates these partners to ensure Weshapesoul works only with organizations that are diligent and transparent about product safety, quality, and efficacy.

Simply put, we do the legwork — with expert support — so you don’t have to. We want you to feel confident in your health and well-being choices.
