Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is one of the most effective forms of therapy and works by helping individuals understand and change the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are contributing to mental strain. AbilitiCBT™ works the same way but virtually, as a clinically effective iCBT program guided by experienced therapists to provide real-time support for those looking to navigate mental-health concerns, including:

  • Depression and anxiety;
  • Uncertainty, isolation and unique pandemic-related stressors;
  • Social anxiety;
  • Pain management; and
  • Loss and grief.
