How Brightside Works

The care you deserve

We focus on making care simple, convenient, and effective so you can focus on feeling better.

Take the first step

Take the first step

Medication done right

Depression is personal. Your treatment should be too.

Brightside doctors use our PrecisionRx tool to get your medication right, so you get results.


We analyze over 100 data points about you to determine the medication most likely to work for you, including medications like Zoloft, Lexapro, Prozac, Wellbutrin, and more.


Your doctor sticks with you at every step, monitoring the symptoms and side effects you report to ensure you’re on the right track.

Fine tuning

Everyone responds to medication differently. Your doctor will adjust your dose or medication until it’s just right for you.

Comprehensive Care

Medication isn’t the whole story

Depression has a range of causes and responds best to multiple treatments.


Our digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) program helps modify negative thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best


Our self care resources help you align your daily behaviors like sleep, diet, and stress management with your treatment.

Our Results

Treatment with Brightside works

Treatment isn’t a quick fix. Even after you start to feel better, it’s important to continue your treatment until you and your doctor agree it’s time to stop.

Brightside gave me access to care that I so desperately needed but otherwise would not have had the time or energy to pursue. The process has been seamless, professional, and has made a world of a difference in my daily life.
