How does the program work?
A questionnaire at registration helps us pair you with a therapist who can help with your needs and goals. Additionally, we reach out to your health insurance company, if applicable, to determine your cost, if any.
During the program
During the program: After your initial video call with your therapist, you’ll begin the 12-week, app-based program. Your therapist will be with you at every step, available via text to guide you through lessons and activities designed to help you improve your mental wellbeing.
The Meru program is designed to not only help you through current issues but to equip you for a lifetime of improved emotional health. As part of that, you’ll have ongoing access to “Meru graduate” resources like webinars to help you stay on track.
