Together, We Are Bright

Do Better. That’s what we live by every day at The Bright Foundation. Founded to standardize support for mental health providers in the area, we actively prepare practitioners to deliver the highest quality of care in the area, from certification to business plans. With a common platform for education and advocacy within the industry, our members can rely on the foundation to establish equity in healthcare for providers. As a member of the Bright Foundation, you’ll be exposed to opportunities that align with our key offerings aimed at building the foundation of successful mental health careers and strengthen the level of care in our community.

Workforce Development

While we offer B5 Fellowships, our scholarship and internship program, The Bright Foundation offers multi-level training sessions and courses to support fundamental industry teachings and help young professionals earn their licenses. Through The Bright Foundation, aspiring practitioners also have the opportunity to enter into a Job Match program with other members of the foundation.

Business & Financial Services

Our goal is to prepare entry-level practitioners for the real world of mental health care work. By offering business planning, underwriting, billing and accounting services, you can develop more skills to benefit your position in the industry and begin to develop your own private practice.

Professional Advocacy

The Bright Foundation will be there for you through thick and thin. Whether its negotiating a contract, understanding the terms of your new employment, combating client complaints and settlements, active community lobbying, we offer our industry expertise and services to support any situation and give you—the practitioner—a voice in the community.
