Learn to Live provides online self-help programs to address psychological problems such as depression, social anxiety, stress, anxiety and worry. Learn to Live is part of an exciting movement within behavioral health around providing lower cost but highly effective methods of web-based healthcare treatment. The programs are modeled on over a decade of clinical research that demonstrates that internet-delivered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ("iCBT") is as effective as face-to-face therapy. In addition to providing programs directly to consumers, Learn to Live partners with employers, health care providers, insurers and universities – all of which can benefit from the low-cost delivery model, behavior tracking capabilities, data analytics, and powerful program outcomes.
Recent highlights from the Learn to Live team include:
  • $1.1 million in funding, led by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota
  • Recent hiring of DJ Bouchier as CTO
  • Additional B2B clients in 2016: employers, universities and health care providers

The main reason – FLEXIBILITY!
