Lucy Deland, the partner at Inspired Capital who invested in Hopscotch, told Insider that the startup stood out in the market because it increases access to care while addressing a growing shortage of mental health providers.

“Sometimes access creates problems in terms of exposing undersupply, and there’s a structural problem in this space in terms of missing doctors,” he said. “Hopscotch understands the clinical side of things and he’s really focusing on taking care of them and creating more access to digital tools.”

Marla Beyer, CEO and co-founder of Hopscotch, said a focus on providers is a critical element of the startup, and she has hired employees from Boston Children’s Hospital and the American Academy of Pediatrics to better support physicians in the application.

“Hopscotch is supporting providers with the infrastructure that enables them to deliver quality care so they can make sessions as interactive as possible, allowing them to focus on delivering unprecedented care to children and families,” he told Insider in a statement.
