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 460,000 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.
