One in four people in the UK will have a mental health problem at some point in their life. Yet, only one in eight people with a mental health condition are receiving appropriate treatment.
Like physical health, we all have mental health ranging from excellent to very poor. With this in mind, it is still one of the only aspects of medicine that is poorly understood, assessed, diagnosed and treated. Together, we can change this.
We were founded as we envision a future where everyone can be given effective interventions for mental health problems that are specific to them and provide both predictive and positive outcomes.
