Seeking professional help

is not weakness.

Our History

Balanced Mental Wellness LLC was founded in April 2023 by Katylynn Hymas, a dedicated and board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner. The inspiration behind the company's inception stems from Katy's personal experience with her daughter's battle with serious mental illness. Witnessing the challenges her daughter faced and the impact it had on her family, Katy developed a deep appreciation for the importance of mental health and a strong desire to make a positive difference in the field.

Katy, armed with her professional expertise and a burning passion for advocating for mental health, embarked on a journey to establish a company that would provide comprehensive mental health care services. Her primary focus was on supporting youth who often face unique mental health challenges.

The pivotal moment for Balanced Mental Wellness came when Katy had a conversation with a colleague who had already set a retirement date. Recognizing the potential gap in mental health care for the colleague's patients, Katy was invited to step in and ensure that they would not be left without the crucial mental health care they needed. This invitation sparked the formation of Balanced Mental Wellness LLC, as Katy saw an opportunity to fulfill her mission of delivering compassionate, evidence-based care to those in need.
