Hurdle is a mental health tech startup for invisible barriers.

We are Hurdle.

Hurdle is a digital platform revolutionizing mental health care by providing services with a focus on culturally intentional mental healthcare for people of color. Only one in three Black Americans who need mental health care receives it. Hurdle is working to break down the barriers to mental health care for people of color to create an equitable behavioral health service with culturally responsive care and resources.

We are here to help.

We are rapidly expanding and on a mission to be in every state by end 2023. Our services are provided via teletherapy. At Hurdle, we have built a custom training program to help therapists thoroughly examine and address the unique experiences that ethnic minorities encounter on a daily basis. We offer paid mandatory training as well as provide ongoing consultation and professional development to all of our therapists.  We facilitate and pay for credentialing with our major in-network payors.
