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

Our Purpose

Charlie Health is the country’s largest virtual Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for young people and families

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 facilitated groups, individual therapy, and family therapy, allowing us to create personalized, holistic, and sustainable recovery programs.

We support teens and young adults 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.
