Our teen and child psychiatrists are medically trained physicians who specialize in diagnosing, treating, and preventing behavioral conditions and challenges with kids - within 48 hours - compared to typical wait times of 6 to 12 months.
Nearly 75% of mental health conditions are identified and treated in primary care, and 61% of kids are misdiagnosed. We're changing that through expert pediatric psychiatrists, a clinically validated collaborative care model (CoCM), and technology enabled platform. ¹,²
Delivering validated, evidence-based care
"The most frequent problem I have encountered in over 14 years of treating kids is inadequate or inappropriate diagnosis and treatment. It’s time to change that — starting with a new kind of digital in-take process." - Monika Roots, MD

Bend Health has reimagined the member in-take process. Through CoCM and proprietary technology, our teen and child psychiatrists are able to more efficiently make evaluation and treatment decisions based on objective data from multiple sources, including videos. As a result, we’ve clinically optimized the consultation time. This allows us to respond quickly while delivering the highest level of care possible.
A more precise diagnosis and treatment plan also ensures the best quality of care is delivered in a timely manner reserving the services of pediatric psychiatry for those who need it most. While some will require a video consultation, not everyone will need to meet with their psychiatrist. Everyone receives the attention they need through their care team which is continuously collaborating with psychiatry and primary care. This collaborative approach is proven to deliver better health outcomes.
Bend Health’s app functions within the browser or on your smartphone. There is no need to download anything. Just fill out your medical history and get started. Once treatment begins, your care team will communicate directly with you and your doctor to monitor progress.
