What does my basic subscription include?
You will be able to track your mood (and daily responses to that mood), lifestyle adjustments on a weekly level, and your overall well-being on a monthly basis (hope, connectedness, etc.) - each of which provide some basic summary stats. You can also access a portion of the training (Week 1-2) - and progress in the gamified levels. Along with being able to participate in a “daily discussion,” you can access SOS anytime (for immediate support), and a place to journal thoughts and create your own Wellness Plan (gathering everything you personally feel will be helpful to reach deeper, more sustainable healing).
What are the advantages of upgrading to Lift Premium?
You will have access to all 12 weeks of the Lift training videos, actions, quick questions, and strategies. In addition to tracking basic stats for your daily responses to mood, you’ll be able to dive deeper into various correlations associated with patterns of good days and hard days. Deeper analysis will also be available for weekly lifestyle inventories and monthly surveys of depression, anxiety, connectedness and overall well-being. Any of this data can be shared with unlimited allies to whom you can give access and send private messages. The entire Lift community (forum) is also available to you as well. (A separate payment is involved for those wanting additional support through a trained wellness coach).
How long does Lift take?
There is no set amount of time to move through Lift. The training can be explored in whatever time frame feels comfortable. We provide a 12-week pathway as one option. We encourage people to take whatever time they need - and not to rush or go too fast. Participation in the Daily Tracker, forums, groups and in personalized coaching are open-ended – and can go as long as someone needs.
Is Lift a kind of therapy?
No, it is not. We’re careful to respect that line – and encourage people seeking therapeutic advice to connect with a counselor or other professional. That’s why we’ve worked hard to create and launch a new professional directory as well! Our aim is to offer high-quality education, based on the best available research, and technology – combined with opportunities to interact with others seeking this same freedom. Many individuals who are working with a therapist use Lift as a complementary tool for their overall recovery efforts.
Does Lift take a specific philosophical approach?
While our team brings together many different perspectives on this issue, we are united in our commitment to helping people find lasting, sustainable freedom from depression and anxiety. A good way to describe our collective approach is that we’re trying to bring together any perspective or strategy that might be helpful in sparking someone’s sustainable wellbeing.
What if I can’t afford Lift?
Basic access to Lift is free for everyone - all the time. The subscription cost for LIft Premium allows us to maintain and continually improve Lift. For those interested in Premium access, but unable to afford it, please let us know your situation so we can explore options!
How does Lift ensure that my subscription is anonymous?
Lift does not, nor would not, share any user information – with industry standard data security protections in place. At sign-up, all we need connected to you personally is a working email address. You can use a pseudonym if you prefer. The username you create upon signing up also doesn’t have to identify you in any way and will be the only way the community will see you. If you sign-up for a Lift group or coach, they will only know you by your custom username as well. Lastly, your bank statements will show charges from Impact Collective, LLC if you purchase through our website. However, if you purchase through the app, it will show the full app title: "Lift - Lift – Depression & Anxiety".
