How it works
Care for your mind
We're here to listen, and we're here to help.
It takes just a few clicks on the mobile app or website. No registration is required.
We’ll call you for an initial assessment and match you with a counselor who specializes in your area of need.
Visits take place via phone or video and last about an hour. Your counselor will work with you to define and work toward your goal.
If one visit is all you need, great! But, if like most people, you need more, you can schedule another visit.
