As the only psychotherapy app available to service those under the age of 18, LARKR focuses on improving quality of life, particularly for youth and young adults, through mental health treatment.
LARKR also provides options for group therapy sessions, so families can speak with a therapist together even if they are in different locations. All therapy sessions on the app are led by professional and licensed therapists who are heavily vetted through LARKR's rigorous background research.
In addition to the affordable video-based therapy sessions, LARKR provides free resources such as guided meditations, a daily mood journal, and reminders to do good deeds for yourself and others.
"On behalf of LARKR, we are happy that today The World Health Organization is encouraging people from around the globe to celebrate the importance of nurturing one's mental health. It should be a priority just like our physical health is," said CEO and Co-Founder of LARKR Shawn Kernes. "We are working hard every day to make mental health less stigmatized and to ensure that individuals across the country have access to affordable quality care."
