This benefit is available to all Amazon employees and members of their households, including children who are aged 0 to 17 years. It covers up to 5 coaching and/or therapy sessions per eligible member per issue per year at no cost to the employee.

In addition, Amazonians in the U.S. enrolled in Cigna, Aetna or Premera medical plans through Amazon can avail Brightline as a covered benefit once the 5 sessions per issue per eligible member are exhausted for coaching and therapy. Medication management may also be covered by these medical plans. Standard cost share will apply when medical plan coverage is used. Brightline will check and confirm eligibility when members sign up.

We support kids, tweens, and teens — from newborn all the way up through age 17. Our Brightline Coaching programs are tailored to the age of your child. We support new parents and caregivers who have kids ages 0–5, and work directly with older kids and teens. Behavioral therapy and medication support are offered for ages 6-17.

Coaching deals with behaviors or emotions that your child is experiencing in shorter, focused sessions. Expert behavioral health coaches teach new skills that address things like separation anxiety or tantrums. Coaches then practice these skills with the child, motivating them to work towards positive change and reaching their goals.

In therapy, the therapist or psychologist and your child work together to look at behaviors and emotions and then try to understand the root cause of them. By asking bigger "why" questions and diving into the past, symptoms can be identified and reduced. Therapy is also used to assess, diagnose, and treat more severe or complex conditions.

All Brightline coaches hold a master’s degree in a psychology-related field or a bachelor’s degree with a coaching certification and have 5+ years of experience working with children, teens, and families. All Brightline therapists are licensed mental health professionals with a master’s degree and are highly trained to support children, teens, and families.

Yes. One recent survey showed that 85% of parents who had a child participating in virtual behavioral health services said their child benefited from that care. We know that for some kids and teens, it’s not always easy to talk to someone new about their challenges or feelings. Kids often feel more relaxed and open to sharing from the comfort and privacy of their home.

I often feel like a failure as a parent, but Brightline has been giving me hope that it can get better.
