Our Mission:

Mental health is for everyone. Lantern’s mission is to provide affordable and accessible services that empower people to live their healthiest and happiest lives. Ultimately, our relationships, our families, and our communities thrive when individuals prioritize their mental and emotional wellbeing.

Our Core Values:

Be Authentic: To make sure our product helps our users and coaches, be evidence-based and data-driven. In our office, and in our product, strive to be genuine.

Be Open: Be curious and motivated to keep learning and changing for the better. Value unexpected connections, creative solutions, and divergent thinking.

Be Driven: We expect intrinsic motivation and a commitment to Lantern’s mission, which allows us to trust each other to do our work and do it well.

Be Good to Each Other: Start with respect. From there, listen, engage, and keep trying to understand until you get it. Recognize that getting help and feedback is just as important as giving it.

“One of our values is simply ‘Be good to each other.’ I think that means starting from a place of respect; it’s amazing how easy it is to communicate when you start there.” Tali Beesley, Senior Content Strategist 

Our Goals and Aspirations:

IMG_3433Seek Balance: Work and life do not need to be at odds with one another. Maintain a flexible outlook on goals, objectives, and projects and strive to keep everything in balance.

Have Fun Every Day: Do the little thing that will make someone else’s day more joyful. When we have fun, we like each other more, are more productive, and are more likely to want to come to work.

Forget the Hierarchy: At Lantern, the best idea wins, no matter who it comes from. Collaborate with others as your equal.

Strive for Inclusivity: Mental health is for everyone. When interacting with current users, approaching new users, hiring new employees, and creating new content and experiences, make decisions that strive for inclusivity.

“I like working at Lantern because of the inclusive and collaborative environment.”

Megan Murk, Health Coaching Manager
