Lehigh Valley Health Network’s Department of Psychiatry Launches Behavioral Health App

Updated September 22, 2020

BY KATIE CAVENDER

Your mental health is just as important to your overall wellbeing as your physical health. With that in mind, the department of psychiatry at Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) recently developed a mobile app to help bring mental health resources right to your smartphone.

The LVHN Behavioral Health app is a digital resource center to learn about programs, providers, emergency resources, treatments and see the department’s calendar of events. Through a generous grant from the Dorothy Rider Pool Health Care Trust, the app was developed on the Guidebook platform.

Given the limited capacity and the high volumes of behavioral health care needs in our region, the behavioral health app does not promise to expand behavioral health care; instead, the app serves as a complementary tool to manage behavioral illnesses and conditions.

It’s already being used. In fact, to date:

  • There have been 719 LVHN app downloads.

  • The app was accessed 5,580 times.

  • The top viewed resources related to transcending anxiety and stress management
