Now is the moment for transformative mental healthcare solutions

The convergence of three mega-trends is making what was previously impossible, possible.

The need is accelerating

The incidence of mental ill health is rising, and the stigma is falling.

Technology is unlocking the data

The adoption of telehealth has accelerated and smartphones have become ubiquitous, enabling the capture of data at scale.

AI can turn data into breakthroughs

Developments in language data interrogation techniques, including AI, now enable new breakthroughs.

Breakthroughs in mental health: word by word

The epicentre of driving transformation

At ieso, we're revolutionising the way the world understands and treats mental health. We've cracked the code of mental health treatment. We're super-charging therapy and therapists. And we're taking our solutions global.

We’ve cracked the code of mental health treatment

Our solutions drive precision, access and efficiency in mental healthcare by giving therapists and healthcare systems tools for assessment, treatment and prevention.

We're ‘super-charging’ therapy and therapists

Data drives our world-class recovery rates. We’ve built the largest data set of its kind - an asset our data scientists interrogate in real time using the latest AI tools.

We're taking our solutions global

We are one of the largest and most trusted providers of digital mental health solutions in the UK. Now we’re building solutions for breakthroughs in new markets.

We’re on track to positively impact 100 million lives within 5 years

Social purpose

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

Environmental impact

By delivering therapy online, ieso removes the need for patients to travel, which has environmental benefits. For example, ieso delivered 125,000 sessions of online therapy in 2020, equating to an estimated saving of 1.25 million road miles or 500 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Governance and stewardship

We have an ethical responsibility to protect our vast data corpus and to use it for human good.
