Full Name
Michael Castanon
Alter Health Group
Michael Castanon is the Founder and CEO of Alter Management, LLC, which provides a range of mental health services using the latest science and evidence-based treatments. With a proven track record of building successful behavioral healthcare organizations, Michael is now dedicated to developing new and innovative ways to improve success rates. His mission: set the standard for excellence in the behavioral health industry.

Prior to working in the behavioral healthcare space, Michael spent more than 20 years as a highly-regarded executive in the financial services industry. With expertise in leading and driving growth for large organizations, Michael has built a team of talented, dedicated professionals and guided Alter Health Group (AHG) to the top of its industry.

To further support clients in living successful, meaningful lives, Michael and his team developed outside mental health resources like the BeWellLine, a crisis hotline, and Mindfuli, an on-demand online mental health platform that connects people to trained, affordable counselors and therapists. Mindfuli recently integrated into Kipu Health’s Electronic Medical Record (EMR) environment, allowing for a seamless transition of patient data and making the platform even more effective and user-friendly. To support these services, AHG recently received a grant totaling over $5M from the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), after having received a previous grant from FEMA through CalMHSA and the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). In total, Mindfuli and the BeWellLine provided support through 40,000 virtual care encounters to those who may not have otherwise received care.

Michael and his team aim to transform lives and put clients on a new path, free from the desperation of addiction and mental health disorders. He is excited to continue working toward a brighter future in the mental and behavioral health space.
