Help make mental health support free and easy to access - for

everyone

We’re teaming up with top scientists and professionals, to devise digital treatments to mental illnesses, test them, and then make the very best freely available to everyone.

A fledgling mental health charity backed by the UK Government.

Help is not there when it's needed, and too often it is there too late.

Many people feel like the help available currently can be too vague, and waiting times for medical help are too long; most wait a year or longer to start psychotherapy. Suicide is currently the biggest killer of men under 45 - something needs to change.

The UK has a GDP per capita of £32,400 and is one of the most effective healthcare systems globally. If we can’t do it, how are countries like India, with a per capita income of £1320, supposed to address the needs of their 1.35 billion citizens?

Free online help is the only practical way to tackle current mental health problems on a global scale.

Why it’s so important to make it online and free

No one should suffer in silence - however we know that for many people the thought of waiting over a year to get medical help just doesn't seem practical. Sometimes things can be hard to speak about and having the most effective interventions, proven by science, available immediately could be the difference in saving a life.

We’re going to develop an app that’s proven to help improve mental health

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.

To achieve this we need people like you!

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.
