Provide diagnosis and treatment for patients who may otherwise receive limited care due to geographical location, provider shortage, or mobility restrictions. Use advanced technology to overcome access barriers and deliver comprehensive behavioral health care to patients in a timely, professional and compassionate manner.

Brighter Day Health is a leading provider of behavioral health services to rural nursing home residents nationwide. We understand the challenges skilled nursing facilities face in finding mental health care specialists who can deliver– regardless of location – consistent, timely, and high-quality behavioral health services to patients when they need it. Many patients receive only sporadic visits.
We believe patients should have access to a far superior model of care, which is why we provide resident visits on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
At Brighter Day Health we use safe and trustworthy methods and technology. Our team of specialists is experienced in overseeing clinical programs and is qualified to provide a comprehensive continuum of care for skilled nursing residents:
Our Psychiatry and medication management services are managed by board certified psychiatrists.
Our psychotherapy and neuropsychological testing services are conducted by Doctorate level psychologists.
