Help us build the solution to the youth mental health crisis.

Our Purpose

Charlie Health is the largest provider of virtual intensive outpatient (IOP) treatment programming to young people and families in crisis.

Our virtual model allows us to treat teens and young adults who need therapy more than once per week, or who need additional support after completing an inpatient program. Charlie Health’s IOP is rooted in a combination of group, individual, and family therapy that allows us to create personalized, holistic, and sustainable recovery programs.

We are proud to treat young people no matter where they live, who they are, or what they can afford. At the core of everything we do is the belief that healing is possible.
