What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia?
This short video from our partners at PsychHub helps to explain what Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is.
COVID Coach uses psychoeducation and tools based on cognitive behavioral principles (CBT) to help users manage stress, track their mood, and find resources “during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.” Users can access coping tools such as mindfulness-based relaxation, exercises to help challenge negative thoughts, and progressive muscle relaxation. Users can also add tools of their own. Other features include wellness assessments, mood and symptom tracking, lessons and tips for staying healthy during COVID, and a searchable database of resources (e.g., Crisis Support, Local Resources, Public Benefits).
