About Fort Health:

Fort Health is a child and adolescent mental health company that is on a mission to “Opening more paths to better care for more families”. Today, 50% of children in the US with a mental health issue do not receive care, and 60% of US counties do not have even a single practicing psychiatrist. This is a massive area of need, impacting 17M children in the United States with a market size greater than $50B.

Our vision is to create an integrated set of support resources to understand, assess, diagnose and treat mental health challenges through digital tools and access to virtual clinicians.  We are partnered with the industry leading child psychotherapy non-profit institution in the US, the Child Mind Institute,  who is helping us build clinical protocols, train our providers, and create proprietary content. Our motto is: ‘We Are Stronger Together’ and our model is to partner with pediatricians, insurance plans, and parents/caregivers to open more paths to better mental health care for more children and adolescents.

Come work for a company with an inspiring mission and a hard-working, supportive team making a difference!
