Join hands with us in the mission to enhance family mental health

"At Backpack Healthcare, we believe that clinician satisfaction = client satisfaction. We specialize in mental and behavioral health treatment for kids, teens, young adults and families."


At Backpack, empathy is one of our core values. It influences every aspect of our work, from how we treat our patients to how we collaborate as a team. We understand that understanding the experiences and challenges of children, youth, and their families is crucial to providing the best mental health care.


We strive for excellence in everything we do. This means not only providing the best treatment but also being committed to continuous improvement. Our specialists engage in ongoing training and seek the best practices to ensure exceptional outcomes for our patients.


Inclusion is a guiding value in how we work. We recognize the diversity of experiences among our patients and their families and aim to create an environment where everyone feels respected and valued. This is reflected in our policies, programs, and how we treat each individual we serve.


Collaboration is essential to our mission of caring for the mental health of children, youth, and families. We work as a team, sharing knowledge and perspectives to find effective solutions. Collaboration occurs not only within our organization but also in close partnership with parents, guardians, and other healthcare professionals.

Commitment to Well-being

The well-being of our patients is our top priority. We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment where children and youth can grow and thrive. Every decision we make and every action we take is driven by a commitment to improving their emotional and mental well-being.

Our mental health specialists are committed to excellence and ongoing growth. Their professional development scores reflect their competence and dedication to delivering high-quality care to children, youth, and families.
