Our areas of focus
Our work to harness data insights and digital innovation to provide new technologies and mental health support to people across the UK is underpinned by our team of in house clinical experts.
Data & research
We use anonymised, aggregated data to generate unique insights into the mental health of the UK population. We use these insights to enhance our services, to inform the development of new resources and products, and to report on trends of interest for the broader mental health sector.
We view partnerships as central to our mission to improve access to transformative digital mental health resources and insight across the UK.
We are the charity behind Shout 85258, a free, confidential, 24/7 text messaging support service for anyone who is struggling to cope. Shout began as a pilot in May 2018, and was launched publicly in May 2019.
Our mission, vision and values
Our vision is that everyone in the UK has access to the digital mental health services that they need and can access appropriate, high-quality support quickly and efficiently through the power of technology.
We're on a mission to use data insight, clinical expertise and digital innovation to ensure everyone in the UK has access to the mental health support they deserve. Read our organisational strategy and priorities for 2021-22.
