, the digital behavioral health platform of choice for more than 150 of the largest U.S. healthcare payers and providers, is thrilled to announce the launch of its integrated Coaching feature. Coaching works with myStrength members, helping them get the most from the platform's evidence-based self-care interventions that address depression, anxiety, stress, substance use, chronic pain, opioid risk management, and sleep challenges, while also supporting the physical and spiritual aspects of whole-person health.
The new Coaching feature complements myStrength's digital self-care resources by connecting members to a dedicated Coach who encourages positive behavior change and builds a human connection with hands-on encouragement, support and direction. Coaching further enhances and personalizes the myStrength experience by guiding members to the appropriate myStrength resources, augmenting the platform's sophisticated machine learning algorithms that deliver an individualized, self-driven, HIPAA-compliant experience. Connection to a dedicated myStrength coach is made through digital interaction. Members receive personalized, stigma-free support through asynchronous messaging in myStrength's web and mobile applications.
"We want to meet people wherever they are in their journey. Our coaches offer guidance through personalized tools to help individuals manage their challenges and achieve their goals, re-gaining a greater level of health and well-being", said Scott Cousino, myStrength's CEO. "By integrating Coaching with myStrength's evidence-based, self-help resources, we continue our advancement of multimodal capabilities, extending behavioral health access to covered members, promoting higher levels of engagement and improving outcomes, while delivering proven value to healthcare payers and providers".
myStrength's latest advancement into Coaching follows recent Mindfulness and LGBTQ+ resource expansions, as well as the launch of an entirely new Sleep program offering highly-personalized tools anchored in evidence-based models. To learn more, please visit www.mystrength.com/contact
