Accessible and Inclusive Mental Health with You in Mind

At Backpack Healthcare, we believe all children, young adults, and their families deserve fast access to life-changing mental health care and much-needed resources.

Why Backpack Healthcare?

We all walk around with an invisible backpack. It carries our emotional experiences, traumas, and unresolved feelings. Similar to a physical backpack, it can become heavy and burdensome when filled with too many items. We created Backpack Healthcare to help lighten the load.

You’re in the right place.

We offer comprehensive services for everyone involved in your child's mental health healing journey, regardless of your background, identity, or circumstances.

Our leadership ethos relies on the conscious principle of understanding your needs. We've been where you are now. There's a reason Backpack Healthcare exists today.

In 2020, during the worldwide pandemic, our CEO Hafeezah's six-year-old son desperately needed mental health services, and she struggled to find a provider that accepted Medicaid. After learning that over 42M children are on Medicaid, over 20M are struggling with mental health symptoms, and only 14% of mental health providers accept Medicaid patients, Hafeezah's mission was born.

In 2021, she founded Backpack Healthcare (formerly Youme Healthcare) to solve Maryland's children's mental health epidemic.

Backpack Healthcare aims to provide personalized, accessible, and inclusive mental health care to the most vulnerable and underserved children nationwide.

Let us help you. Our compassionate approach reflects the emotional intelligence our expert team has cultivated and the experiential and intellectual methods we've crafted to provide you with practical support and emotional care, which everyone in need can rely upon.
