This is what it feels like to feel better
Meru’s 12-week program helps you address the present and sets you up for a lifetime of better mental health. And it’s covered by several major health plans.
Immediate access to continuous therapist support
Meru Health delivers personalized, therapist-guided care designed around your schedule—not therapist availability.
How Meru helps you
Meru Health is a clinically proven treatment for depression, burnout, and anxiety.
The 12-week program is built around a continuous-care model. That means a dedicated, licensed therapist available via both scheduled video sessions and unlimited in-app chat. This is in addition to lifetime access to in-app activities and lessons designed to give you the skills and strategies you need for better emotional wellbeing.
Meru also offers an eight-week coaching program for stress or mild symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Fast, effective mental health care
The Meru participant experience
Our 12-week, app-based program is divided into weekly themes that help you overcome mental health challeneges and build skills and habits to prevent relapses.
Continuous care model means your therapist is always a text away.
Heartrate variability measurement helps you track your improvement.
Our HIPAA-compliant platform means your personal information is always safe and secure.
How does it 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.

Let's take a breath
Deep, slow, controlled breathing reduces stress by telling the “fight or flight” part of your nervous system to relax. The science on this is well established, and we put it into practice with both heart rate variability data and guided breath work.
Here’s a sample. Try it. You’ll feel better.
