Digital health startup Brightline lays off 20% of staff — again

Pediatric mental health startup Brightline, which has received financial backing from health systems, is laying off 20 percent of its staff for the second time in six months.

The job cuts will affect corporate, nonpatient-facing staffers, a Brightline spokesperson told Becker's.

"This decision was not taken lightly, and although incredibly difficult, it will ultimately allow us to better serve our clients and provide even more families with the mental healthcare support they deserve," the spokesperson emailed.

Brightline, which provides virtual therapy and psychiatry for kids and teens, previously reduced its workforce by a fifth in November. Founded in 2019, the startup has raised $212 million, according to Crunchbase, including from New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health and Boston Children's Hospital.
