Our mission is to make pediatric mental healthcare accessible and affordable for all.

At Hopscotch, we believe that…

Equal access is a priority

It’s essential to increase access to pediatric mental healthcare through insurance-covered treatment and evidence-based content.

Provider support is essential

Child and teen providers are most effective when they have a supportive network and the specialized resources they need to serve families.

Therapy is not one-size-fits-all

We are focused on building a highly-vetted network of diverse providers, who come from different backgrounds and have diversified specialties.

The system can be fixed

By taking a modernized approach that leverages technology to build towards preventative behavioral healthcare, when and where it’s needed most, we can be change agents.

Hopscotch is built by leading clinical experts

"Children and families deserve excellent care for their emotional health and they are struggling to access it. And clinicians deserve to have the tools to truly connect with kids and families in a way that feels engaging and meaningful. Hopscotch can help bridge this access chasm, helping therapists meaningfully connect with kids and families that need their help."
