Meru Health Digital Clinic for Mental Health
Meru Health's digital clinic offers an app-based treatment program that is supported by licensed therapists. The program is 100% confidential between you and the licensed Meru Health therapist.
Meru Health individualizes the program based on your personal information and needs.
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 therapy.
LICENSED THERAPIST ON BOARD
Right from the first call until the final week, a licensed Meru Health therapist actively supports participants to become empowered and recover. We provide help when it's needed most.
ANONYMOUS PEER SUPPORT
During the program, participants connect with and learn from an anonymous peer group. Recognizing that other people have similar challenges that can be overcome, is tremendously beneficial.

"My experience with the Meru Health program was excellent. I enjoyed the idea of having a different theme each week, with videos and guided practices to support each theme. 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. I have taken Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) courses in the past, and found Meru to be superior to the in-person classes, in part because I was able to do it at my own pace and at whatever time of day suited me. The daily reminders to do the practices were quite effective and I wound up following through almost 100% of the time--way better than when I've taken MBSR courses. I also really appreciate that I continue to have access to the guided practices now that I've finished the treatment program. I highly recommend the Meru Health program to everyone--whether dealing with depression and/or anxiety, or simply seeking a more positive and peaceful life experience."
“I am very thankful to have participated in the treatment program with Meru Health. I had doubts that a mobile treatment program could do anything about the burnout, anxiety, and depression that I’d been experiencing for the past ten years, and, since I’d been meditating on and off for ten years, I thought I had nothing new to learn. I was wrong.
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.
The flexibility of the tool is really helpful, particularly with my shifting work schedule. When I needed help, the therapist was able to get back to me quickly with suggestions. And the different practices are very helpful, and I enjoy continuing to use them.”
"Meru has been such a healing experience for me. I didn’t know what to expect other than the hope that I’d come out the other side completely transformed and capable. And that’s exactly what happened. I went from feeling depressed, highly anxious, hopeless, and powerless to feeling happy-neutral, with a calm and centered mind, feeling accepting, capable, and empowered. No doubt the success came from me putting the work in myself and taking it seriously, but I couldn’t have done it without Meru’s unique program and encouraging therapists. Meru was the tool I needed to help me form sustained habits to wellness. Everyday I still continue to use their unique set of practices and I don’t plan to stop.”
