ieso is the first company in the world to explore therapy language through machine learning. We work to translate this into digital therapeutics that make precision treatment and assessment accessible anywhere.
Our mission is to transform global mental health by unlocking the power of clinical data. We’re revolutionising the way the world understands and treats mental health. We aim to make mental healthcare accessible to all by creating digital assessment and therapeutic tools for mental health conditions.
Just like physical healthcare, insights into mental health can be drawn from big data. At ieso we’re changing the future of mental health by unlocking the power of clinical data.
Dr Andy Blackwell is the Group Chief Science and Strategy Officer at ieso. Watch Andy’s talk at TEDxNatick on “Artificial Intelligence Meets Mental Health Therapy” in which he shares our vision for mental health transformation and how we are using AI to improve recovery results for tens of thousands of patients.
How Are Things? Mood & Symptom Checker is the first digital product from the innovation lab of ieso. It's an easy-to-use digital tool which anyone aged over 18 can use to complete a self-assessment based on clinically validated, globally recognised measures. ieso is a leading online mental health service provider delivering evidence-based digital solutions that identify, treat, and prevent mental illness by applying deep-learning capabilities alongside clinical and scientific expertise to learn what really works.
A one-size-fits-all approach is not effective in meeting individual needs. We need tailored care to drive up recovery rates and reduce relapse.
There are not enough therapists in the world to meet care needs. We need to radically scale-up care - using automation and augmentation to make clinical resources go much further - and making care affordable around the globe.
Current interventions are delivered too late. We need to predict and, where possible, prevent mental ill-health to result in better outcomes.

"A trusted NHS partner for over a decade, we have delivered over 555,000 hours of transformative CBT typed therapy to over 100,000 people. Combining clinical expertise with our technologically advanced tools, ieso’s mental health solutions allow staff to take a positive step towards mental wellness, and in times of trouble we help employees to find and access the right care for them."
We are working on creating breakthroughs in four crucial areas of mental healthcare.
Therapy is expensive - and recovery requires the right intervention. How can we avoid the costly revolving door?
Therapists vary and clinical quality often depends on therapist intuition and experience. How can we consistently maximise dose and chances of recovery?
Treatment is expensive and clinician time is scarce. How can digital treatment reduce the cost and increase the accessibility of care?
Helping patients stay well and detecting problems early saves money and lives. How can data and technology make this a reality?
ieso’s research has been published in key journals over the last ten years, adding crucial knowledge to our understanding of effective mental healthcare. For updates on when we publish new research papers, blogs and other resources sign up to our newsletter.
Our approach means we’re continually gathering a new understanding of what works in treatment, and why. Read our latest news, research and articles written by people shaping the future of mental healthcare.
