Sanvello Health, Inc., a leading provider of digital and tele-mental health solutions is now available to HMO groups in California as of Oct. 1, 2021, with premium access to its digital care delivery platform and self-help app. Created by psychologists, the Sanvello™ app uses clinically validated techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy — a type of psychotherapy shown to be especially effective for individuals experiencing high levels of stress or symptoms of anxiety and depression. Available from the convenience of a mobile device, Sanvello empowers individuals to engage with activities to help improve their mental health anytime, anywhere — helping relieve symptoms and build life skills that may reduce potential high-cost interventions in the future.

  • Peer Support: Users can join group conversations to share personal stories and chat with others who often feel just like them. 
  • Coping Tools: Users can find useful techniques to calm their mind, change their outlook, redirect negative thoughts and improve daily activities and sleep.  
  • Mindfulness Meditation: Learn how to “pay attention with purpose” and find focus during a time of uncertainty, with a library of guided audio meditations.
  • Daily Mood Tracking: Users can track their emotions, add notes and spot patterns that help them feel calmer and in control.
  • Assessments: Short weekly interactive quizzes provide clinically validated, objective scores for stress, depression, anxiety and resiliency to measure current levels and quantify progress over time.
