Mental Illness Awareness Week may have come and gone, but that doesn't mean mental health websites such as Lantern should go to the waste side. It is a great tool found both online and on mobile devices that can help people navigate their emotional well-being in a way that is not only helpful and accessible, but also inexpensive.
Founded in 2012 in San Francisco, California, such mental health websites as Lantern bring researchers, technologists and clinicians to the tips of people's fingers. As written on the website, Lantern helps translate "clinical research and expertise into simple, effective web and mobile programs based in cognitive behavioral therapy." By doing so, such mental health websites help to remove the stigma and barriers that prevent people from strengthening and improving their emotional selves on a daily basis.
