How Meru Health works

Meru Health is an evidence-based, 12-week program clinically proven to treat depression and anxiety, with longlasting results.

Easy access: Therapist call availability within 7 days of signing up, with continuous chat-based support thereafter.
Evidence-based care: Your patients will learn proven methods for emotional regulation, sleep and nutrition, and how to change negative thought patterns.

Strong, measurable results: Clinically relevant symptom reductions measured every two weeks (PHQ-9 and GAD-7).

Warm handoff: If a patient is not suitable for the program, the therapist will suggest treatment options for you to discuss.

We’re leading the way on outcomes research

From peer-reviewed papers to our ongoing RCT study with the National Institute of Mental Health, we’re leading the way in mental health care.
