A no-cost, virtual program to support your mental health!


No one is immune to life’s ups and downs, and especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s normal to feel sad, lonely, or anxious—but there are steps you can take to feel better.  

Path to Well-being is a new joint initiative of McLean Hospital, Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP), and Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JF&CS).

Participants access this no-cost, six-to-eight-week, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) from a laptop or via an app on a tablet or smartphone. It provides practical strategies that can help you feel better, even during stressful times.

This program is part of a research study that will collect confidential data on the effectiveness of this treatment to help advance advocacy for insurance coverage. All data will remain completely confidential.

CBT is a skills-based treatment that focuses on things you think and things you do that contribute to conditions like anxiety and depression.  

Run by experts at renowned McLean Hospital, you’ll learn and practice CBT techniques that are proven effective for managing stress and anxiety online, with guidance from a CBT coach.
