Why Charlie Health
In their words
Client & family testimonials
“I have never felt so happy with myself.”
I struggled very much with anxiety and panic disorder and depression. I was super nervous about joining Charlie Health but now that I have completed the program, I have never felt so happy with myself. I have been able to control my mental health and live my life.
“This program saved my life.”
I came to CH with so much trauma and undiagnosed mental health issues. I couldn’t see how things could possibly get better for me, but Charlie Health gave me reason to keep going, to keep trying. This program saved my life.
“My daughter was acting like herself again.”
I really didn’t know what to do for my daughter before Charlie Health. I’ve always felt I’ve been alone in this. I felt so helpless. Within the first week [of her starting Charlie Health], my daughter was acting like herself again. Charlie Health has given my daughter and me lifelong tools to navigate her anxiety and panic attacks. I’ve been blown away. I’m very impressed and very happy.

FAQs for How it WorksSee All FAQs
How do I know if IOP is an appropriate treatment for me or my loved one?
Our primary program offering—virtual intensive outpatient care (IOP)—is an appropriate level of care for teens and young adults who need more than weekly therapeutic support. Many of our clients have either recently discharged from a higher level of care (i.e. a residential treatment facility or emergency department admission) or are seeking more support than traditional weekly talk therapy.
Can I use my insurance for Charlie Health services?
We accept major insurance providers and Medicaid. Your financial circumstances should never be a barrier to receiving care.
Is virtual mental healthcare effective?
When teens, young adults, and families no longer have to drive back and forth to in-person therapy, it’s easier for them to fully participate in treatment. Virtual care also means personalized care, which is why our outcomes are well above industry averages.
What if I am taking medications or need to meet with a psychiatrist?
Psychiatrists are available as needed for medication management, dependent on which state you are located in, via an affiliated medical provider. Psychiatry services are provided by psychiatrists and other clinicians employed by independently owned and operated professional practices and not by Charlie Health, Inc. or its subsidiaries.
