Do you like to play video games and/or use apps to manage your health and wellness?

Emerald City Sanctuary has partnered with Litesprite to offer a special technology-based program for our clients who wish to take advantage of this cutting-edge platform. The game Sinasprite uses evidence-based treatment methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)-based strategies and meditation to help people manage chronic health conditions. Litesprite has been recognized by the U.S. Surgeon General, U.S. Army, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, SXSW, Livestrong Foundation, and Singularity University.

Sinasprite is the first video game to win a U.S. Surgeon General Award and is the only one being recommended by clinics today, with clinical solutions for:

  • Behavioral health
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

Here’s what players have been saying:

“Everybody should start downloading Litesprite, it’s life changing” – M, 40s, anxiety/depression

“When you live alone – you have to find other ways to do things to not be lonely or bored. It is so awesome. I really like it. When I have things on my mind the journaling is very helpful. I like to watch Socks make things float away or put things in the box. It is very intense. Keeps your mind thinking” – F,46, Bipolar I disorder, moderate depression, PTSD, cannabis abuse

“Ever since I started using Litesprite I have been thinking and feeling better, thank you for setting me up with it” – F, early 20s, severe depression

How do Emerald City Sanctuary clinicians use Litesprite to help clients?

Clients can opt in to using Litesprite as an add-on to their therapeutic work. The game allows for remote patient monitoring and assessments, which your clinician uses to track your progress in between appointments and review data that can improve your care. Playing the game can also allow for continuity of care if a client wishes to continue using Litesprite after formal therapy has ended, or during weeks when therapy appointments are not scheduled.
