Mental health problems in adolescence do not always simply resolve themselves.

Hopebound works to revolutionize access to mental health and wellness support for young people from historically marginalized communities.

We are dedicated to reimagining what accessible mental health support means for adolescents in need.

What We Do

Hopebound exists to ensure that every young person aged 10-18, especially those who hold marginalized identities, has access to therapy. We take care of the youth of today while training the therapists of tomorrow to provide quality mental health care that is radically inclusive and norm-defying in its centering of BIPOC, queer, and low-income communities. Through innovation, imagination, and a lens focused on intersectionality, Hopebound aims to create space for every young person to show up as their whole selves along their journey to wellness. Our mission is to eradicate barriers to access and revolutionize the world of mental health care as we know it so it can become care that knows us.

In addition to working directly with families, we partner with schools and community programs in Georgia and New Jersey to support adolescents through affordable and proven therapy interventions.

We provide weekly teletherapy to under-resourced middle school and high school students at no or low cost and offer workshops and group counseling to our community partners.

Why Adolescents?

Adolescents, or middle and high school-age children, are an extremely vulnerable age group – today more than ever.

We serve all adolescents, but have a particular focus on under-resourced adolescent populations such as those who are low-income, people of color, LGBTQIA+, in foster care, experiencing houselessness, or are involved in the juvenile justice system.
