Let’s talk about your family.

Too many families today are facing a perfect storm of despair. According to the CDC, nearly one in five children in the U.S. has a mental, emotional or behavioral disorder, driven in part by the COVID pandemic, social pressures and other factors. Yet for various reasons, only 20% of them receive the care they need.

The situation is particularly dire in Tennessee, which ranks 40th out of 51 for the highest prevalence of youth mental illness and lowest access to care.

This is truly a national emergency. If unchecked, our children are more likely to drop out of school, abuse drugs, go to jail and even take their own lives.

But there is hope.

At HopeNation, we’re on a mission to change this narrative. Using high-touch telemental health, our expert therapists support parents and caregivers by providing convenient, results-driven care for children, teens and young adults suffering from depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.

We’re more than a practice or a consortium of therapists. HopeNation is a movement.

Our experienced founders put clients first.

“It takes a village.” That’s the approach that built HopeNation. Our founders have experience successfully treating children, teens and young adults. Plus they understand how to create a business that puts the client first to ensure their satisfaction.
