Digital Mental Health Clinic

The Stanford Digital Mental Health Clinic provides a hybrid of 1:1 individual therapy and digital mental health treatments for depression and anxiety disorders. 

Program Highlights

We are a team of psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and licensed clinical social workers dedicated to providing accessible and high-quality mental health care for patients using a combination of digital treatments and face-to-face sessions. We combine 1:1 therapy with evidence-based digital therapy programs delivered via smartphone apps.  

  • We connect patients with evidence-based digital treatments that patients can use on a daily basis

  • We provide face-to-face digital coaching and supportive therapy sessions through telehealth appointments 

  • Upon completion of our program, we help coordinate care for patients, including referral to additional therapy resources if needed

We prioritize using evidence-based treatments that have established efficacy in research studies. We also value using programs with clear privacy policies that are easily accessible and user-friendly. Our current Digital Mental Health Interventions include:

Digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Daily lessons and exercises to teach principles of CBT
  • In-app text therapy with a therapist
  • Anonymous peer support
  • Symptom monitoring

Digital Mindfulness and Meditation

  • Daily lessons in fundamentals of meditation and mindfulness
  • Access to full library of courses to help build a daily practice
  • Virtual group meditation
  • Customizable to individual goals

We offer these programs to build skills in CBT and mindfulness/meditation through daily use of a digital program, in conjunction with supportive psychotherapy and digital navigation support from our team of clinicians.
