We want to create a world where people are empowered to take control of their mental wellbeing and can learn to Thrive, not survive.

We’re still only scratching the surface of what is possible, and you’ll no doubt see what’s coming as the year goes on…

And beyond...

2021

Having grown to support over 3.8m users in 2020 across more than 30 countries around the world, we saw our human led in-app chat service increase usage by 329%, our user base grow by over 200%, our average engagement in the service increase by over 150%, and our internal teams grew by over 120%. 

300%+ Growth...

2020

With several research trials completed, an exceptional clinical team, and over 1.2m users, Thrive cemented itself as the leader in outcomes and impact for organisations. Supporting over 2,500+ organisations globally by 2019, and having done it all through organic growth rather than external funding, Thrive becomes the most secure, sustainable, and impactful mental health business for organisations and employees to utilise.

Market Leaders - 
more employees supported than any other

2019

Thrive is the leading NHS approved app for organisations who want to give their employees tools and skills to keep them well. With lots of apps in this space, Thrive is proud to be one of the only apps meeting the clinical and security standards set by the NHS when working in healthcare. Given we are dealing with mental health, every provider supporting employees with their mental health should be independently regulated in the same way every hospital, doctor, or healthcare professional is.

2018

With over 500,000 users by our second year, Thrive began looking global. We began working with our first international partner, Air New Zealand, in 2017. The app rebranded to Thrive: Mental Wellbeing and using case studies and data points, we started to look at how we use healthcare data to improve ROI using our software.

Global reach

2017

Thrive: Mental Wellbeing, although initially titled ‘Feel Stress Free’, was launched in January 2016. We began working in professional sports, insurance, education, and banking within our first year. The app, still the first and only of its kind, became revolutionary and started the trend of which many others have now followed.

Finishing our randomised clinical trials with UCL and the University of Roehampton, Thrive: Mental Wellbeing was ready to go as the first mental health app to be clinically effective in preventing conditions, as well as detecting them early.

The final studies

2015

The next augmented reality app was released, Agoraphobia Free, combatting the need to provide treatment for those with Agoraphobia. Typically this treatment is delivered in clinics, but given Agoraphobia is the fear of leaving the house, the treatment options make little sense for people. The app  was the first of its kind that could support people in  their homes with clinically effective tools to support their agoraphobia.

The first to use augmented reality for mental health

2014

Bringing on experienced games developer, Richard Flower (a key member of the team behind Tomb Raider and many others), the team set about on their first of several randomised clinical trials with the first incarnation of Thrive. On the side, the team also created the first augmented reality game for the phobia of spiders, Arachnophobia Free, which was featured on Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies with Dr Christian Jensen, which was a way of testing digital interventions in low risk populations of people. 

Healthcare first, technology second

2013

With a combined experience of over 40 years across the NHS and independent sector, Dr Andres Fonseca, consultant psychiatrist, and Dr Adam Huxley, consultant clinical & forensic psychologist, were still unsatisfied with the level of impact they could have when it came to the bigger picture of preventing mental health conditions. Traditional support services weren’t enough to tackle the UK’s mental health crisis. Thrive was born as the first scalable solution.

The clinically effective app which prevents, screens for and manages mental health.

Investing in your employee’s mental health can be made simple.

- Bailey Lavelle, Wellbeing Consultant at Santander

“The Thrive: Mental Wellbeing app is a critical part of our wellbeing offering. It helps improve our colleagues’ mental wellbeing, build personal resilience and find additional support when we need it. Our colleagues love the range of tools in the app that help them relax after a day’s work, de-stress on the go, and learn how to deal with day to day situations better.”

- Jamie Broadley, Staff Wellbeing Lead

"Working with Thrive has been a joy and the app has made a really positive impact on our staff. From initial meetings, through implementation and into ongoing delivery their team have been responsive, professional and lovely to work with. The product itself is miles ahead of anything comparable, combining elements which could only otherwise be found in separate apps. Our staff have really taken to it with some of the highest engagement rates of any of our initiatives. The data is showing that using it is leading to clinical reductions in anxiety & depression which is the whole reason for bringing Thrive on. Overall we couldn’t recommend more."

"We partnered with Thrive in the UK in September 2019 when we launched the Thrive mental health support and mindfulness app, as part of an onsite people event, in support of employees mental wellbeing. Thrive have become a true partner, supporting a range of our mental wellbeing initiatives: i.e. training our wellbeing champions to support employee mental health through listening and signposting resourcing, providing mental health support training for managers and graduates, as well as providing onsite sleep sessions. All events have been well received with positive feedback from across the business. We look forward to the continuation of our partnership."
