This year we are proud to be celebrating a huge milestone for Thrive. We are marking 10 years on our journey to empowering people to live happier, healthier lives. We are taking this opportunity to reflect on how far we have come, the service we now provide and look to the future for what’s next.
Thrive was founded in 2012 by Dr Andres Fonseca, consultant psychiatrist, Dr Adam Huxley, consultant clinical and forensic psychologist and Richard Flower, CTO.
With a combined experience of over 40 years across the NHS and independent sector, our founders were unsatisfied with the level of impact they could have when it came to the bigger picture of accessibility for mental health support. Traditional support services weren’t enough to tackle the mental health crisis and they felt a seamless journey needed to exist.
From being one of the very first mental health apps, we are proud to have grown sustainably without the need for venture capital funding. Our user base is supported by our social impact mission and Thrive: Mental Wellbeing has been recognised by the NHS as one of the very few passing specific clinical and safety standards, ensuring its safety, reliability, and effectiveness for the user. We are proud to be an MHRA registered medical device, supporting a user from prevention right through to self-help and further treatment.
In 2015 Thrive: Mental Wellbeing finished the randomised trials with UCL and the University of Roehampton – it was ready to be one of the first mental health apps, clinically effective in preventing mental health conditions, as well as detecting them early.
As we look to the future, we see a new and improved app, real-time reporting, further healthcare regulation and the ability to support our users from prevention, to immediate access to therapy all the way to intensive support round the clock if needed. We have amazing partners supporting and trusting us that we can’t wait to work hard with to support their people.
