Help us build the solution to the youth mental health crisis

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 12-28 year olds 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.

Our vision

To heal youth and families everywhere who are experiencing mental health crises by providing equitable access to high-quality, evidence-based care.

Carter Barnhart
CEO and Co-Founder

"We're building the solution to the youth mental health crisis and saving lives every day. Each clinician, team member, and leader at Charlie Health plays a critical role in helping improve access to industry-leading care."

“Our mission is to decrease mental health visits to the emergency room and to dramatically reduce rates of youth suicide.

We know that sending young people to the E/R for a mental health crisis doesn’t work. We know that life-saving care is often too hard to find, or too late. At Charlie Health, we’re fixing that.”

Dr. Caroline Fenkel, LCSW, MSW
Chief Clinical Officer and Co-Founder
