By giving everyone free online access to actionable plans designed for them to help them overcome their specific difficulties, we will provide those who need it with the best chance to improve their day to day life. The interventions we encourage will be proven to be effective and constantly updated using the best available data.
We're also aiming to change public perceptions of digital mental health, lobby governments and funders, and support researchers whose work makes it all possible.
We're building a multi-disciplinary team of experts, contributors and influencers to ensure we can provide this resource safely and effectively. If you are interested, please get in touch to find out more.
