Breakthrough discoveries
to transform mental healthcare

With scientific insights from our treatment data we’re making breakthroughs in mental health understanding, treatments and outcomes.

Revolutionising how the world sees mental health

Mental ill-health is on the rise. Whilst rapid progress in physical health treatments is being made, the world knows comparatively little about what makes mental healthcare successful and why. 

We’re expert clinicians, scientists and digital technologists setting new standards for how the world sees and treats mental health. Our tools and partnerships help people access world-leading treatment where and when they need it, with better chances of recovery.

World-leading digital treatment, when people need it

How it works
Collective insight and clinical evidence

We’ve collected over 580,000 hours of therapy sessions. Taking these anonymised interactions, we use AI, machine learning and deep neural networks to recognise patterns in conditions and treatment.

Which creates precision treatment

Our analysis has led us to believe that we need more specificity in how we define mental health conditions. So, we’re breaking up conditions such as depression into more specific types. This makes our treatments targeted and tailored. And we’re committed to sharing our findings with the world.

With access anywhere, everywhere

Our online therapy makes our one-to-one treatments accessible wherever, whenever and at whichever stage of a person’s recovery. We partner with healthcare providers, insurers, life science organisations and employers. Our treatments and digital tools help the people they care for feel better, faster.

Science

Using science and digital therapeutics to tackle mental health challenges

Helping people, societies
and economies make progress

ieso is transforming mental health. Transforming how it’s treated. Transforming how it’s understood. Transforming how patients recover.

We’ve treated over 100,000 people, with 600+ clinicians delivering treatment. That’s 30% more effective than industry benchmarks at a 70% reduction in cost. Better mental healthcare is making a huge difference to people, society and the economy. And through advancements in our research, we’re continually learning what more we can do to help.

Advance the services
you provide by partnering with us

Partner with us to give people access to our mental health treatment service. Or use our evidence-based tools to improve your own.

We provide the NHS, private healthcare organisations, insurers and employers with fully-managed mental health therapy services. Patients get a world-leading experience that maximises their likelihood of recovery.

Our digital tools help our partners to make their own treatment services more efficient and effective. Improve people’s access to mental healthcare, reduce treatment costs and help people get better, faster.

'The Health Economics of Early Intervention'

ieso’s exclusive 2021 findings on the topic of health economics in general population are conclusive. There is a proven and direct correlation between the speed of entering treatment - from the point of initial concern - and the economic and productivity impact on the patient’s world, be it personal or professional.
