Online mental health wellness tool

Lantern’s mobile-first platform delivers wellness support based on cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, and its self-directed app offers a more consumer-friendly, scalable and cost-effective experience for patients.

Lantern’s approach to behavioral health is backed by proven science and was developed in partnership with experts at Stanford University, Penn State University, and Washington University in St. Louis. As a strategic partner with UPMC, Lantern is implementing its digital behavioral health platform within UPMC’s clinical care environment and is planning to extend its platform into additional patient populations.
