ORLANDO, FL (July 8, 2021) — Advanced Recovery Systems proudly announces the launch of Nobu: a free, comprehensive mental health app that helps users learn about mental health, set wellness goals and track their progress. Nobu also offers professional one-on-one counseling directly through the app. Nobu is available now in the Apple App Store, Google Play store and at

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for mental health resources became even more urgent.

  • 75% of workers reported experiencing mental health symptoms during the pandemic.
  • Nearly 1 in 5 people who contracted COVID-19 later developed a psychiatric disorder, such as anxiety, depression or insomnia.
  • Approximately 33% of U.S. counties have no records of licensed psychologists and 77% had “severe shortages” of psychiatrists and other behavioral health providers.

Left untreated, mental health symptoms can negatively impact nearly all aspects of a person’s life. Nobu will help more people to get the help they need to take good care of their mental health, regardless of where they live.

Nobu offers daily guidance and a suite of free tools developed by physicians and mental health experts using evidence-based principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness and meditation to provide effective relief for mental health symptoms. Users can customize their mental wellness journey with different features, including:

  • AI-Powered Bot helping you to navigate through your Journey and measure progress
  • Industry-standard clinical assessments for mental health conditions
  • Hundreds of mental health lessons and webinars
  • Journaling & mood tracking
  • Goal setting and tracking
  • Yoga meditation and breathing techniques
  • Sleep sounds

People in need of more support can also schedule and attend online therapy sessions with a licensed mental health professional through the app, and/or communicate with their therapist through a confidential messages feature. Like traditional in-person therapy, costs associated with working with a Nobu teletherapist may be covered by insurance.

Nobu is a secure, stigma-free platform that is fully HIPAA-compliant and supplements current HR programs and employee assistance programs (EAPs). For more information on Nobu, its features and how employers can use Nobu to support employees’ mental wellness, visit
