“I am enjoying the self-directed aspect of Brightside. The CBT lessons have really helped me examine the choices I'm making and evaluating whether they fit my personal values. It's still a process, but I'm glad to be doing the work each week.”

“I’ve done traditional therapy before and I feel like Brightside was made for me. I really like how easy the interface is and how simple it is to track progress and contact your provider. I’ve recommended it to two of my friends that also struggle with mental health.”
