ieso featured in Sifted’s list of mental health start-ups across Europe
ieso featured in Sifted’s review of mental health start-ups across Europe who are addressing the extra strain on people’s mental health caused by the pandemic. 35 out of 79 start-ups working in the sector are based in the UK.
“In terms of funding, the biggest company in Europe in [gateways to mental health] is British start-up ieso. The company connects patients with therapists for online therapy via a chat service. The company says it can be used to treat depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, phobias and OCD.
ieso has partnered with the UK’s National Health Service to offer free CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) to patients in many areas of the country.”
The article also includes comments from our CEO, Nigel Pitchford:
“State sector and public health systems are an obvious place for start-ups to engage with,” says Nigel Pitchford, CEO of ieso. “These tend to be the primary routes for people struggling with their mental health to passthrough and hence the volumes are large.”
