Innovative technology, and first class clinical teams and trained moderators, create a unique environment for members to lead their own recovery.

In 2008, stigma around mental health was widespread and there was a complete lack of safe, judgement-free spaces to talk about depression and anxiety. We started with the idea of combining emerging online forums where people supported one another and clinical support, and shortly expanded our service to include creative tools, courses and web-based therapy. Over a decade later, we have a vibrant community and an extensive clinical team to provide much needed 24 hour support to expanding populations. We are backed by Impact Ventures UK, the pioneering investment fund that enables purpose-driven businesses to scale and achieve their potential.
