CLIP: Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Implements Mental Wellness Mobile App

With funding from YourMomCares, UPMC has launched an interactive behavioral health app to provide support for adolescents and young adults. The application employs trained mental wellness coaches to educate users about coping skills available directly on their smartphones. Pediatricians will identify patients who can benefit from the application, and progress will be directly monitored by medical professionals. In collaboration with YourMomCares, UPMC is ensuring that no child suffers alone by making resources available on mobile devices, which the target age group uses every day.
