What is Beating the Blues?

Beating the Blues is a clinically validated online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) tool, designed by experts to help individuals manage mild-to-moderate depression and anxiety.

It brings all the benefits of CBT directly to your patients via their computer or smart device, at no cost to the patient or the provider.

How does it work?

Beating the Blues consists of 8 weekly online sessions, each lasting 50 minutes. It works by helping patients understand depression and anxiety and then providing them with tools to better manage their condition, teaching them how to think differently about themselves and the things that happen to them.

After each session, patients are given things to do and think about as they go about their daily lives.

Seven out of ten people who have used Beating the Blues have been able to overcome their depression and would recommend it to one of their friends.
