SparkRx is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy, a therapeutic modality proven to assist with the symptoms of depression and other mental health disorders. SparkRx is an adjunct treatment for teens and young adults aged 13-22 who are experiencing symptoms of depression. More safety information can be found on the SparkRx website. SparkRx is accessible via a health care provider and available at no cost to patients for a limited time. Providers interested in offering SparkRx can sign up on the SparkRx website and receive a unique access code to give to patients. The access code will allow patients to use the app.
SparkRx meets young people in a comfortable format – their smartphone – allowing them to take control of their treatment and make progress at their own pace, over a 5-7 week period.
