Daybreak Health, a San Francisco, CA-based clinically validated online counseling platform for teens to build emotional wellbeing, raised $1.8m in seed funding.
The round was led by Maven Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to further develop its clinical and software engineering team to increase its reach within California and expand into additional states.
Founded in 2019 and led by Alex Alvarado, CEO, Daybreak Health provides an online mental health platform that matches teens with expert counselors based on their needs and connects them to counselors through their app and live online video sessions.
While Daybreak Health provides counseling for teens, the company also fully supports and involves parents through regular check-ins and updates on their teen’s progress. The platform also includes free online educational workshops for parents on topics to help them navigate the ins and outs of teen mental health. Additionally, the company partners with pediatric healthcare providers and schools to ensure health care professionals, student counselors and educators can refer Daybreak Health’s clinically validated program to families.
