Sanvello uses principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help users with symptoms of anxiety, depression or stress. Users complete a self assessment questionnaire and receive anxiety, stress and depression scores. Sanvello uses these scores to track the user’s progress over time and to provide personalised activities and exercises. Exercises include educational articles and videos, guided meditations, and mood tracking. Some other tracking features are found under the tools tab including meditation, health, hope, thoughts, and goals. Sanvello offers two social features. The first is a Healthcare feature where users can give a professional access to their profile and information. The second is a community message board where users may connect by posting, liking and chatting.
