What is Vida Health?

Vida Health is a mental health platform that allows you to connect with a therapist 24/7 through phone, text or video from the comfort of your home.

With Vida, you get a program tailored to you and your emotional health journey. When you sign up, you have the chance to share your goals and preferences. Vida uses that information to build a program and experience from the ground up, just for you. The program includes an expert therapist, easy mood-tracking and helpful resources like videos, lessons, practices and more — all aimed at helping you achieve better emotional health, in a way that works for you.

What kind of health coaching can I receive through Vida?

At Vida, we handpick the best coaches, health experts, and therapists from across the country. Whether you’re just starting your health journey, training for your next marathon, or somewhere in between, our coaches and therapists can help you reach your personal goals. Here are a few examples of things we can help with:

  • Nutrition, including support for specialized diets (gluten-free, paleo, vegan, keto, and more)
  • Getting fit: exercise and strength training
  • Coping with stress, anxiety or depression
  • Improving sleep
  • Postpartum health and weight loss
  • Managing diabetes, hypertension or other chronic conditions
  • Tackling pre-diabetes or other risk factors, so they don’t lead to chronic disease
  • Building resilience and improving your outlook

Can I only participate if I have a chronic condition?

No. Whether you are looking to get (or stay) fit, lose weight, handle stress or anxiety, prevent disease, manage a chronic condition or meet another health goal, we have expert coaches and therapists available to help.

Who can participate in Vida’s mental health programs?

Any registered member! Life is full of everyday ups and downs and almost everyone feels anxious or stressed from time to time. All of us can benefit from positive mental health practices.

Whether you’re looking to better handle stress, build your resilience to bounce back from whatever life throws your way, overcome depression or anxiety or work toward another mental health goal, we have expert health coaches and licensed therapists available to help.

Our stress resilience and stress management programs equip you with tools and practices to meet and embrace the ups and downs that come your way. And our licensed therapists use proven cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to help you deal with life’s challenges.

Can I choose my coach or therapist?

Absolutely. After downloading the Vida Health app, you’ll be prompted to create an account and select your preferred program. Then, we’ll get you matched to a coach by collecting your input, including the coaching style you’d like, whether a cheerleader, drill sergeant, listener, or something else.

We’ll recommend some coaches/therapists that could be a good fit and then the choice is up to you.

Can I change coaches/therapists if it doesn’t work out with my first coach/therapist?

Absolutely. To request a change, go to the Home screen in your Vida app, tap the gear icon in the upper right, then tap Request New Coach. You’ll complete a brief survey so we can match you with a new coach that’s the best fit for your style and goals.
