Founded by mother-daughter duo, world-renowned child psychiatrists Dr. Helen Egger and Rebecca Egger, Little Otter is the nation's first fully digital, results-driven tele-health company focused on providing evidence-based mental health care for children between 0-14 years old and their entire families. Little Otter is designed by world experts in childhood mental health, and is delivered in a full virtual manner through their state-of-the-art platform to the comfort of your home.



Currently, there is an average of 8-16 weeks of waiting for seeing a child mental health provider, and 72% of counties in the US have zero child psychiatrists. Brick and mortar will never solve this problem. Additionally, there is an increasing need for mental health services for children and families. Mental health emergency room visits for kids aged between 5-11 have increased by 24% in the past year and rates of child anxiety and depression doubled in 2021. Little Otter is helping to eliminate the unavailability and long wait times to see a provider.



When you join the Little Otter family, you receive a 30-minute welcome call with your Care Lead, 24/7 text access, same day appointments with providers, a custom family mental health report, measurable insights, actionable feedback, and digital resources written by Little Otter’s experts. The app offers child therapy, child psychiatry, couples counseling, parenting support, and parent mental health care. Parents can send messages, schedule appointments, and track their child’s progress in the Little Otter app. Translating her 3 decades of research, Dr. Helen has developed proprietary assessments of the common emotions and behaviors of early childhood and of family stresses. Through these assessments and quarterly mental health check-ups for each child and their family, Little Otter provides personalized, virtual care and an integrated care team to support healthy emotional development and treat emerging emotional and behavioral challenges.



All Little Otter providers are their employees, and they go through proprietary training led by Dr. Helen, who also serves as Chief Scientific Officer. Beyond their qualifications and training, Little Otter is also making sure to hire culturally aware providers who excel at delivering mental and behavioral health care digitally.
