Overt Foundation Program
We are here to help individuals who are facing mental health challenges and cannot access therapy through their own means or insurance.
The Overt program makes mental health therapy affordable by being heavily subsidized, where a large percentage is covered by us. Therapy can help individuals overcome many mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, and relationships. In our program, you will be paired with a licensed therapist who is specialized in your challenges and can assist you to conquer what you are facing. We’ll also ask you to share your story and experience with mental health therapy on our website. Not only does it help your recovery but also others who have had similar feelings and experiences.
