Train Your Brain for Better Health

Our medical team recommends these mental health lessons based on principles that are proven to reduce anxiety and depression when combined with your medication.

Healthy thought patterns are essential to overall mental health.That may seem obvious, but what’s surprising is that positive mental habits can be learned — and we can help.

A large body of evidence shows that when treating depression and anxiety it’s most effective to employ both medication and training in cognitive behavioral techniques, and that using these modes of treatment in tandem is more effective relying on one alone.

That’s why we recommend our mental health patients complete three virtual care sessions based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Each self-directed educational session will help you develop healthy behaviors and tactics you can practice to enhance the effects of your mental health treatment plan.
