Helping Kids Get the Mental Health Care They Need

The last decade has seen a drastic increase in mental health disorders in children and teens. At the same time, the U.S. is facing a critical shortage of mental health providers.

Wait lists to see a therapist can be weeks or months long. Poor access to care can have dire outcomes; the CDC reports that suicide ranks among the top three primary causes of death among adolescents 12-17 and in college-aged youth.

Researchers believe social media, cultural pressures, dependence on electronic communication, and poor sleep habits all contribute to mental health issues in children and teens. The solution requires a modern and convenient approach that kids can relate to – without any negative stigma.


Improving Access to Care
  • Counseling for common issues, such as depression and anxiety.
  • Sessions can be scheduled in as few as 72 hours.
  • Available for children ages 10 to 17.
  • Parents attend first visit and then determine ongoing involvement.
  • Follow-up visits can be scheduled with the same therapist.


Simple, Painless and Discreet

When a child suffers, the entire family suffers – at home, school, the workplace and throughout day-to-day life. Teletherapy combats access and stigma issues without sacrificing quality counseling and care.

  • 1
    Parents can schedule a 50-minute virtual visit with a licensed therapist in as few as 72 hours (vs. weeks or months), which is crucial for kids in need.
  • 2
    Sessions can take place via phone (in some states) or video. This format works well for adolescents who are often more comfortable with virtual versus in-person visits.
  • 3
    Parents take part in the first session (with the option of participating throughout treatment), and can work with the child's therapist to design a detailed treatment plan with specific benchmarks and scheduled check-ins to ensure the treatment is effective.
