myStrength is a digital behavioral health platform that payers and providers can use to target the most prevalent and costly behavioral health conditions — empowering consumers with innovative self-care resources to manage and overcome challenges with depression, anxiety, stress, substance use disorder, chronic pain, and sleep. myStrength enhances traditional care models, while addressing issues of cost, lack of access, and stigma, to deliver mental health and well-being resources at scale. MyStrength Inc. collaborates with more than 150 health plans, integrated health systems, employee assistance programs, disease management providers, managed and community behavioral health providers, strategic alliances, accountable care organizations, and federally qualified health centers.
Results from a clinical trial among a commercially insured adult population with some degree of depression showed that myStrength had a comparable effect to that of traditional psychotherapy. The study concluded that depression management may benefit from expanding treatment offerings to include digital platforms.
