Headway brings tech-based mental health care coordination to Californians

Headway, a company that uses technology to connect people to in-network mental healthcare services, expanded its provider network to California. 

California is the 15th state to join Headway's network, which typically allows patients to access virtual or in-person mental health appointments in fewer than six days after online booking, according to an Oct. 20 news release from the company. The national average wait time for an appointment is about 15 days, according to the American Hospital Association. 

"The mental healthcare crisis in California could happen anywhere and is a reflection of our country's broken system," Andrew Adams, Headway founder and CEO, said in the release. "At Headway, we are helping to fix this crisis by simultaneously solving the barriers faced by providers, health plans and the patients they serve."
