Meru Health Digital Clinic for Greater Mental Health

For a limited time, Cisco and Intel employees and their dependents are eligible to take part in the Meru Health Digital Clinic for treatment of depression, burnout and anxiety — at no charge to the patients. This integrated care model with Palo Alto Medical Foundation and Meru Health, takes place in 2019

Meru Health's Digital Clinic offers a discreet and confidential 12-week app-based treatment program that is supported by licensed therapists. Meru Health can be used as a standalone solution, or as an adjunct treatment.

PROGRAM THAT ADAPTS TO INDIVIDUAL NEEDS

The program is structured around twelve weekly themes which build upon each other. It includes elements of mindfulness-based, cognitive behavioral and behavioral activation therapies. Meru Health individualizes the program based on patient’s information and needs.

LICENSED THERAPIST ON BOARD

Right from the first call until the final week, a licensed Meru Health therapist actively supports patients to become empowered and recover.  We provide help when it's needed most.

ANONYMOUS PEER SUPPORT

During the program, patients connect with and learn from an anonymous peer group. Recognizing that other people have similar challenges that can be overcome, is tremendously beneficial.

Fully Confidential

The program is 100% confidential for the patient. Meru Health won’t share any personally identifiable information with Cisco or Intel.

Highlights!

1) Meru Health published treatment outcomes in JMIR (Goldin et al., 2018)

My experience with the Meru Health program was excellent

"I highly recommend the Meru Health Program to everyone - whether dealing with depression or burnout, or simply seeking a more positive and peaceful life experience.

The therapist who did the videos and guided mindfulness practices was perfect - pleasant voice to listen to, with perfect attitude and tone. I appreciated the availability of the therapist, and also enjoyed the interactions with other people participating in the course at the same time."

A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE

"There were major changes in my life, and I felt so low that there were days when I didn’t have the strength to leave the house.

That’s when I discovered Meru Health and decided to give it a go. It really paid off. I got invaluable support from my personal therapist, which helped me to get back on track. The program also gave me a framework for working towards a better mental well-being on my own.

I still find myself using the tools and practices I learned in the program even though the actual treatment ended months ago."

THE FLEXIBILITY OF THE TOOL IS REALLY HELPFUL, PARTICULARLY WITH MY SHIFTING WORK SCHEDULE

Mixing mindfulness and behavioral therapy was revelatory, and having online access to a personal therapist was an essential part of my success with the treatment program.

With the aid of the app I learned to cut back on my extreme work hours and to practice self-compassion and kindness when I'm gripped with anxiety. Getting more rest and minimizing the anxiety has been the key to significantly reducing the depression.
