About Thrive

Thrive is an online program for people who want to take charge of their emotional well-being to lead happier, more satisfying lives. It teaches skills from cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) a method that has been demonstrated to help many people deal with stress, depression and anxiety symptoms.

In Thrive, you will learn CBT skills that may help you communicate more confidently, think more constructively, and do more activities that make you feel good. Through videos and tailored feedback, you may gain insight into how you're doing now and track your gains as you make progress. Thrive offers a customized experience that responds to how well you are doing and where you have room for improvement. Thrive can be accessed with an internet browser or mobile app.


To participate, you need to be a Montana resident aged 18 or older, have regular access to broadband internet via smartphone or computer, and have depression symptoms that are at least mild.
