Forward, together

Brightline is the first behavioral health solution designed specifically to support children and families with whatever tough stuff they’re dealing with in their busy lives.

With innovative technology, evidence-based care, and support for the whole family at every step, Brightline is transforming the care experience for families as we know it.

Four people doing different activities

For Brightline’s Co-Founder & CEO, Naomi Allen, this work is personal. After navigating the complex behavioral health space for her own child, Naomi founded Brightline, committing to transforming the experience for others. Now, built and led by health care, technology, and behavioral health experts, Brightline’s exceptional leadership and care teams continue to drive their mission forward.

As the need for flexible care grows, Brightline will continue to leverage virtual care to support more and more families across the country. Everything Brightline does is to move families forward to reach their bright future.

Naomi Allen

We know that we can give parents and caregivers a line of sight into the right care for their child. And that we can bring families support when and where they need it most.
