PITTSBURGH - Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh will soon avail a new way for teenagers and young adults to deal with anxiety.
UPMC recently received a $500,000 gift from the non-profit YourMomCares to develop an app to give resources and strategies to deal with anxiety.
Patients will also have the chance to text directly with a health coach.
It’s expected to be unveiled late this summer.
