Headway is a mental healthcare startup that helps people search for and engage therapists who accept insurance for payment.

Headway is building a new mental healthcare system, rewired for access and affordability.

Headway was founded in 2017 by Andrew Adams, Jake Sussman, Dan Ross, and Kevin Chan. The company is headquartered in New York, New York.


Headway is building the first national, virtual network of therapists who accept insurance, helping providers to expand their practices, and individuals to finally find a therapist they can afford. And we’re doing it all through software.


Headway is already powering thousands of therapy appointments every single day. The startup currently has some 1,800 therapists on its books in the New York area and says that tens of thousands of patients have used its service to find them and book appointments.


Headway is backed by Accel, Thrive Capital, GV, GFC, IA Ventures and others. The company raised $26M in a Series A round on Nov 18, 2020. This brings Headway's total funding to $32M to date.
