Easy access to pediatric behavioral health

What We Do

MindNest Health is a digital parent training system that enables parents to use the same clinically validated behavior interventions with their kids that are used by experts at academic centers. Our platform was designed by doctors at the Yale School of Medicine to support parents while they wait for care.


Our ADHD program enables parents to try behavior therapy first, before medication–or, at the same time.


Our tantrum tool trains caregivers in behavioral parenting approaches that are AAP first line treatment for young children.


Our Autism Spectrum Disorder program trains parents to implement clinically validated behavioral interventions
