About Fort Health

This is a part-time 1099 remote opportunity requiring appropriate New Jersey or New York State licensing

Fort Health is a child and adolescent mental health company on a mission to broaden access to quality, affordable, and evidence-based mental health services for children aged 4 to 19 and their families. Today, 50% of children in the US with a mental health issue do not receive care, and 60% of US counties do not have even a single practicing psychiatrist. This is a massive area of need, impacting 17M children in the United States with a market size greater than $50B.

Our company's vision is to create an integrated set of support resources to understand, assess, diagnose and treat mental health challenges through digital tools and virtual access to clinicians. We are partnered with the industry leading child psychotherapy non-profit institution in the US, who will help to build its clinical protocols, train its providers, and create proprietary content.

About the Role

We know that clinicians are the backbone of our company. Everything we do incorporates a clinicians’ mindset so that we can provide them with the best job experience, so that they can provide our patients with the best treatment.

As part of our clinical team, you will be responsible for delivering high-quality, evidenced-based virtual mental health care for children and their families. We are looking for someone who wants to be a part of a growing healthcare startup that is focused on broadening access to affordable, high-quality mental health care for children and their families!

  • Engage with other groups in the child’s life - primary care physicians, educators, therapists, etc. - to ensure they’re getting the holistic treatment they need
  • Leveraging our non-profit partner to bring to bear the most cutting edge treatment protocols and methods for our clients


  • Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), or Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)
  • Licensed to practice in New Jersey (required)
  • Licensed to practice in New York (preferred)
  • Received degree from an accredited training program

  • Experience providing tele-therapy (bonus)
