The company’s CBT-powered behavioral health platform is being made available at no-cost to health plans, providers, and employers through August 31st to help members manage stress and anxiety

Mountain View, Calif. (April 21, 2020) — Lark Health, the leading on-demand digital care platform, today announced that it will make Lark Behavioral Health available at no cost through July 1st, 2020. The behavioral health coaching service is now available to all U.S-based health plans and employers to help members manage feelings of stress and anxiety through on-demand coaching and structured exercises.

As the country continues to deal with the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19), recent data from the American Psychiatric Association revealed that 36 percent of Americans reported that the pandemic was having a serious impact on their mental health, while 59 percent of Americans reported that COVID-19 was having a significant effect on their day-to-day lives.

“At Lark, our mission has always been to provide 24/7, on-demand virtual coaching to help members get and stay healthy, both physically and mentally,” said Julia Hu, CEO of Lark. “Especially at a time like this, we need to deliver holistic solutions to meet members where they are. Our goal is to help ease the mental health burden caused by the pandemic by offering unlimited stress management coaching at no cost.”

The Lark “Stress Less™” framework is based on rigorous Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and consists of week-long missions and daily check-ins. Over the course of the program, members will receive education on specific stress and anxiety-related topics, be able to log and get coaching on their moods, perform mindfulness exercises, and engage in on-demand exercises to help manage their stress and anxiety. Members will also have access to updated COVID-19 information, including the Centers for Disease and Control’s COVID-19 screening survey setting. 

“The stress of everyday life is consuming Americans, and we need solutions that can act quickly and efficiently,” said Dr. Jason Paruthi, Medical Director of Lark. “We need to keep people at home as much as possible, and our behavioral health offering will provide Americans with the proven coaching they need to manage their stress and anxiety, right from their homes.”

The behavioral health coaching platform will be offered at no-cost through July 1st. For more information, please contact COVID19@lark.com.
