Brightside is at the forefront of mental health care, combining clinical expertise with advanced technology & data science to drastically improve health outcomes. And it works. 86% of patients experience clinically-significant improvement within the first 12 weeks of treatment.
92% of our patients meet with their clinician and start receiving treatment within just five days.
We offer care for mild to severe depression, anxiety, and more —including Crisis Care for individuals with elevated suicide risk.
Our precision treatment allows us to personalize care to each patient’s unique needs & symptom presentation.
Patients work with the same clinician throughout their treatment for an unmatched continuity of care.
What we offer
Everyone experiences depression and anxiety in their own way. That’s why we tailor our care plans to each person’s unique needs. Patients can choose psychiatry, therapy, or both.
Our psychiatric providers use our PrecisionRx tool to quickly pinpoint a medication/dose combination that’s both highly effective & nonaddictive.
Our therapists utilize an evidence-based approach to customize care for each patient and structure lesson programs built on the Unified Protocol.
A first-of-its-kind national telehealth program for individuals with elevated suicide risk, Crisis Care is based on the clinically-proven Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) framework.
Our proprietary PrecisionRx tool uses machine learning to help our psychiatric providers pinpoint the most tolerable & effective medication/dose combination.

Patients can message their clinician with questions or concerns any time, so they don’t have to wait until their next appointment.
