Our Mental Fitness program is preventative with purpose, so you can:


Empower employees to take early action to cope with workplace and personal stressors


Curtail the number of workers whose mental health challenges result in the need to take leave


Put a low-cost treatment solution in place where it can deliver the highest return—at the front end of your disability funnel

How it Works

Employees at Work & Struggling

For employees who are at work and struggling due to symptoms of depression and anxiety, the Mental Fitness program acts as an early intervention solution to help members understand what their stressors are and how they manifest. Starling Mental Fitness offers CBT tools and strategies to intervene early on in the process to lower the likelihood of mental health disability.

Employees Who Want CBT Skills

Just like physical fitness, it's important that employees understand what is required to stay mentally fit as well. For workers who want to proactively build a resilient mind, Starling Mental Fitness will help ensure employees and their family members have cognitive-behavioral tools and strategies to manage stress, anxiety, and depression from the comfort of home.

Is the Personal Element Lost with a Digital Solution?

On the contrary, Starling delivers self-guided, digital CBT that works best for each employee.

What’s more, members tend to give pure and honest answers about their struggles when they’re answering questions in a 100% secure and private setting. This means the prescribed treatment matches their real issues, and the likelihood of successful outcomes are higher.

Self-guided treatment is a great example of how employees can get proactive and access therapy tailored to their specific symptoms and professional stressors.
