Who is UpLift Navigator for, can anyone sign up?

Our Navigator service is available to all individuals in the United States who are interested in receiving support and resources related to their child's mental health. That said, our Navigators are not crisis counselors. If you require immediate support please call 911 or visit your local emergency room. You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255), or text the Crisis Text Line (text HELLO to 741741).

How soon can I schedule a call?

When you sign up we will reply with a list of available days and times to schedule your first session. We typically schedule a call with your Navigator within a couple days of receiving your response.

What should I expect from my first phone conversation with a Navigator?

Your Navigator will provide an initial assessment, emotional support, guidance, referrals, and relevant resources to support you and your family through the process of accessing mental health services.

Are Navigators licensed therapists?

No. Your Navigator is not a licensed provider, but is qualified to provide information and direct you to appropriate support and services.

Why work with a Navigator?

Your Navigator will help you through the confusing and stressful process of finding mental health care for your child and will connect you with a qualified professional near you. Many factors are considered when researching potential providers for a family. These include cost, insurance coverage, location, transportation, and other factors that may affect your child's mental health care needs.

Will our conversation be confidential?

Yes. All information shared with your Navigator will be completely confidential. By law, Navigators are required to report instances where an individual may be an imminent threat to themself or others. We encourage you to read our Privacy Policy to learn more.

What does the Navigator service cost?

The initial 30 minute phone conversation, customized roadmap, and follow up session are free. Additional sessions with your Navigator will cost $50 per 30 minute session. There is no obligation to schedule additional sessions.

What information do I need to provide to get started?

All we need is your name and email address. Your Navigator will then email you to discuss next steps.

Still have more questions?

How we help families

Michael's Story
Michael's 12 year-old son was having extreme emotional outbursts. As a result of this behavior, his son was experiencing disciplinary issues at school and home, often missing class and family activities. Desperate for help, Michael found the process of selecting a therapist for his son to be incredibly time-consuming and frustrating -- often scheduling appointments months in advance with therapists who turned out to be poor fits. Today, with the support of a Navigator, his son is seeing a therapist, gaining control of his emotions, and is more engaged at home and school.
Tiana's Story
Tiana is in the 9th grade and was having challenges with some of her classmates. As a result of bullying she was experiencing on social media, she was feeling anxious while at school. These feelings led to her missing classes and frequent visits to the nurse's office. Today, with the help of a therapist, she's learning to regulate her emotions as well as new strategies for managing conflict with her peers. Tiana now feels more at ease and is no longer avoiding school.
Dylan's Story
Dylan is an active, social 16 year-old who has strong friendships, plays basketball on two different teams, and enjoys school. He became more moody the summer going into his junior year, and while his parents thought this might have been due to the stress of planning for college, they quickly realized his low mood and disengagement from his normal activities was a larger cause for concern. Dylan's now receiving support that's helping him manage his depression and work his way back to the life he enjoys.

Crystal's Story
After Crystal's grandmother passed away, she was having a hard time adjusting to life without her. Her grandmother was her primary caretaker when she was growing up, and while she was feeling like she should “feel better by now” she was still experiencing acute feelings of loss and grief. Crystal and her parents were offered resources to learn about the cycle of grief, as well as the benefits of group therapy. Crystal is now able to talk about her grandmother with her mental health provider.
