What is the provider referral bonus program?

Know any colleagues, therapists, or any other mental health providers that may be a great fit for Headway? Let us know and earn $250 for each provider that joins! For more information on how to participate in Headway's Provider Referral Program, please refer to the information below.

  There is a specific bonus structure for group practice referrals —earn $50 for each provider that joins your group practice!


How can I refer a provider to Headway?

Refer a provider to Headway by first creating or signing in to your account on Then go to your provider referral dashboard—if you are already a Headway provider, you can navigate to the referral dashboard in Sigmund.

There are two ways to refer from those pages:

Option 1
Click "Refer a Provider" and fill out the quick form with the provider's information yourself. We'll take it from there!
Option 2
Click "Copy your link" and share the personal link with your referral. From there, they will be able to provide details about their practice so we can reach out with more information and next steps.

You can check the status of your referral via the provider referral dashboard (or the referral dashboard in Sigmund). This can be found under the My Referrals tab.


How and when do I earn my $250 bonus?

You’ll be eligible for our $250 bonus once your referral has completed our intake form. We'll pay via PayPal to the email we have on file — be on the lookout for emails notifying you that you’ve qualified and when the funds are sent!

Funds will be available for withdrawal from PayPal within 48 hours of your referral’s completion of our intake process. If you do not have a PayPal account associated with the email used to create your Headway account, you can easily create a free PayPal account with that email to withdraw your bonus.

Standard transfers from PayPal to your bank account are free and typically take 1-3 business days. Learn more at the PayPal article "How do I get money out of my PayPal account?"


Can I be paid for referrals another way besides PayPal?

To make it quick and simple to be paid on time for your referrals, they will always be sent via PayPal. You can create your PayPal account anytime, and your funds will be available to withdraw as soon as you sign in.


If you run into any issues withdrawing your funds, please direct your questions to PayPal's Help Center.


What if a provider has already been referred?

If your referral has already joined Headway or been referred, you will not be eligible for a reward. If a provider is referred more than once, the first referrer will receive the bonus.


My colleague also got an activation bonus—can I receive that too?

We understand that your colleague received a $200 bonus after they saw their first client who they brought to Headway. We offered this bonus in the first half of the year as part of our launch in new states, and are no longer offering at this time.
