We’re on a mission to redefine the standard of care for people living with a severe mental illness


Pronounced ‘Ah-mai’

Amae is a Japanese concept meaning the need to be in good favor with, and the ability to depend on, the people around oneself. It reflects our core belief that a strong support system is essential to build people up, strengthen their will to carry on and even to thrive in life. This mentality applies across our whole company – from the patients we serve to the team we’re building.

The state of severe mental illness in America is in crisis.

The Amae Health Difference

We are a psychiatry-led integrated care provider of outpatient physical and behavioral health services delivered at our in-person clinics. Our goal is to eliminate disparities in care and improve health equity across marginalized and underserved populations.

Our Story

Amae Health was launched by mission-driven individuals who have lost or seen their loved ones suffer from severe mental illness, and are deeply frustrated by the lack of adequate care available.

At Amae Health, we believe there is a better way. Our team is bringing together both personal and professional experiences to comprehensively solve this problem.
