Brighter Day Health’s mission is to optimize the patient’s cognitive, emotional, and ambulatory abilities, as well as engage the patient in a positive way to improve the patient’s condition.
Our services are approved by both governmental and private insurance. They are supervised by board-certified psychiatrists and by psychologists utilizing individualized, coordinated care plans that focus on psychiatric drug management and behavioral therapy.
We bring comprehensive behavioral health care to patients in a timely, professional, and compassionate manner utilizing the most modern technology to overcome access barriers such as geography, provider shortage, and inability to travel.
Brighter Day Health’s commitment is to improve the quality of life of patients by providing superior access to behavioral health and psychiatric services through use of modern telemedicine technologies. We provide a refreshing experience to accessing psychiatric care by making services available when they best fit the needs of your facility and your patients.
Brighter Day Health partners with facilities, including long term care facilities, to provide compassionate care with dignity and respect. We understand the challenges faced by skilled nursing facility administrators not having access to reliable, quality psychiatric and behavioral health providers available to treat residents.
Brighter Day Health’s company headquarters are located in Houston, Texas. All of the company’s clinical programs are developed and overseen by psychiatrists with more than 35 years of clinical experience. Brighter Day Health’s management team is experienced in overseeing clinical programs and is committed to ensuring high quality services are provided to each patient.
