InStride is a new model of outpatient virtual care. We’re helping kids and teens get back on track more quickly, surrounding them with a coordinated team dedicated to superior outcomes.
This isn’t your traditional, 50-minute session conducted in a clinical setting. InStride integrates care, coaching, and support into daily life to engage kids and teens every step of the way. We tailor intensity of treatment as needed. We walk right along with families, crisis through recovery, at the right pace to get the best possible outcome.
InStride Health is led by two Harvard-trained co-founders of the McLean Anxiety Mastery Program (MAMP) at McLean Hospital (a Harvard Medical School affiliate), ranked #1 in America for psychiatric care. We’re taking that innovative approach and using technology to truly put families at the center of care, surrounding them with treatment that works for them and with them. Brick and mortar simply can’t be as flexible in supporting the needs of busy families. Our virtual care works conveniently with real-world schedules, facilitates open communication, and enables us to truly embrace kids, teens, young adults, and their families with coordinated care.
Anxiety is the most common pediatric mental health disorder. We serve children and adolescents across the full outpatient spectrum.
We work with children, teens, and young adults who struggle with a range of anxiety disorders and OCD, including generalized anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, panic disorder, agoraphobia, specific phobias, and selective mutism.
With InStride, treatment is covered by insurance, eliminating one of the biggest barriers to traditional mental health care. Additionally, virtual coordinated care brings therapy, medication management, and coaching together “under one roof,” giving you convenient access to all your care where and when you need it.
To serve kids, teens, and young adults more effectively, we also provide support and training for parents, caregivers and families, and we collaborate with pediatricians and schools.
We know it’s likely been a struggle just to get this far, but now we’re with you, every step of the way. Our process is simple—we adjust the treatment plan and level of support according to your needs while ensuring measurable and sustainable outcomes.
Dr. Mona Potter and Dr. Kathryn Boger are Harvard-trained clinicians who spent almost three decades combined in the academic world. They are co-founders of the nationally-recognized McLean Anxiety Mastery Program (MAMP). As leaders and innovators in the field of child and adolescent mental health, their groundbreaking work has helped countless families.
But their credentials only tell part of the story. It’s their passion for truly helping those who are struggling that sets them apart. They’ve seen first-hand the suffering anxiety brings and the challenges families face in navigating the mental health system. InStride was born from their vision and drive to change the status quo for the better.
InStride is stronger because of the organizations that collaborate with us to support more effective treatments and make our care more accessible to those in need.
We’re ready to surround you with a coordinated care team and walk with you to a better tomorrow.
