Daybreak Health

Lead Clinical Recruiter

Full-Time in San Francisco, CA - Remote OK - HR

About Daybreak

Daybreak Health is on a mission to reverse the youth mental health epidemic by building the first comprehensive digital mental health system for youth. Up to 1 in 3 youth struggle with mental health, and 80% of those who need it don't receive care.

Daybreak's digital mental health system is designed to help millions of adolescents access effective mental health care in close partnership with schools. Our digital platform gives teens access to amazing, youth-focused therapists through video sessions and our mobile app. We are serving patients in California, and partnered closely with some of the biggest school districts across the state. We have raised our Seed Round from Maven Ventures (early investors in Zoom) and are expanding rapidly.

As a team, we all work remotely and our hobbies include running, the outdoors, our pets, reading, drawing -- and above all, laughing. While the pandemic has kept us from exploring an office and co-working, you can expect these hobbies and interests to feature heavily in future social excursions. We value people who are smart, care deeply about helping others, and come from different backgrounds and perspectives.
