About Fort Health

Fort Health is a mental health company on a mission to “open more paths to better care for more families”. We're all about making a real difference in the lives of children and adolescents.

Picture this: a world where every child has access to the support they need to thrive mentally and emotionally.

Because at Fort Health, we believe “we're stronger together”.
