Who are the providers and therapists?

Brightside’s provider network includes psychiatrists, physicians, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and therapists who are graduates of prominent US medical schools and/or graduate/post-graduate programs, have several years of experience, and have a current unrestricted license to practice in your state. They follow the same high clinical standards as in-person providers.

Brightside’s clinical advisory board consists of industry experts from top institutions such as Stanford, UCSF, and Yale, who oversee our clinical policies and operations.
