LANTERN - Find your way to a stronger self

Lantern is a coach-supported mobile mental health program.  We offer a new, accessible standard of care that engages people who otherwise may never seek or find care to improve mental health outcomes for a fraction of the cost of therapy. Through a range of evidence-based techniques rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness, patients learn to ease and manage stress, anxiety, and depression.
