Take care of yourself with the Sanvello App

By , November 12, 2019 11:03 am

We are happy to announce that full access to the Sanvello application is available to all UMKC students, faculty, and staff members at no cost. Sanvello is the #1 app for on-demand help for stress, anxiety, and depression.

Sanvello is a mobile- and web-based application offering clinically validated techniques and support to relieve mental health symptoms and promote healthy habits and behaviors.  As mental health and well-being become increasingly salient topics in higher education, this tool provides a new, innovative, and accessible way to support our community.  

The Sanvello app provides a range of features, including:

  1. daily mood tracking – the first step in the Sanvello journey is a simple daily question that allows you to capture your current mood and assess progress.
  2. guided journeys – designed by clinical experts, Sanvello guided journeys are engaging experiences that put the power of cognitive behavioral therapy to work for you. Each journey is progressive, helping you feel better and more in control over time.
  3. coping tools – Sanvello offers quick access to coping solutions for symptom management right when you need them: a moment to relax, meditate, practice mindfulness, or manage stressful situations.
  4. progress assessments – without labels or judgment, Sanvello assessments are professional evaluations to help you understand your progress.
  5. community support – you are not alone. One of the most powerful features of Sanvello is our peer student community, where you can find support and inspiration together.

For free full access, simply download the app from the App Store, Google Play, or the Sanvello webpage and register with your UMKC email address.
