Here Are 2023’s Fastest-Growing Behavioral Health Companies

Mental health care and autism services providers made up the bulk of an expanded number of behavioral health companies on the latest Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies.

Twenty-two of the 36 behavioral health companies identified on the list this year were either telehealth companies or were founded as outpatient mental health practices.

The list also included five autism therapy providers. Despite the fact that percentage revenue growth numbers tend to be the purview of smaller, newer and growing companies, many of the autism therapy providers are large incumbents.


To that point, CareBridge, a recently founded intellectual and developmental technology and telehealth company, topped the entire Inc. 5000 list. The company turned heads with its $140 million funding round in June 2022, which included several marquee investors and health plans.

Last year, BHB tracked 23 behavioral health companies on the Inc. 5000, making the number of 2023 entrants a 56% increase.

The business publication Inc. ranks U.S.-based private companies by revenue growth percentages from 2019 to 2022 for companies founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2019. The minimum revenue required for 2019 is $100,000; the minimum for 2022 is $2 million, according to the Inc. 5000 website.
