With support from investors like SoftBank, Silver Lake, Access Industries, Bill Ackman, WestCap, and others, and impactful leaders like you, we’ll continue to democratize mental health care and double down on clinical quality and deliver exceptional client outcomes for years to come. With a heavy focus on clinical quality and safety in all that we do, we’ve accomplished excellent outcomes for hundreds of thousands of clients:

  • 82% of clients report an improvement in their anxiety symptoms after using Cerebral.  
  • 75% of clients who report improvement in their depression see improvement within 60 days.  
  • 50% of clients who initially report suicidal ideation no longer harbor suicidal thoughts after treatment with Cerebral.

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way.
