As reported in the Pittsburgh Business Times, UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh received a $500,000 gift to order to adapt and implement a mental wellness app for children and adolescents. The funds from YourMomCares will take a digital platform built by the UPMC Health Plan for the behavioral needs of adults and modify it for children. The new program will begin with 500 patients ages 16 to 26, with the full app available by the 2019 school year. It will be used at both Children's Hospital and UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital.
