We help prevent, detect early and manage common mental health conditions including depression and anxiety. We develop evidence-based apps that enable anybody anywhere access to effective techniques that enable you to cope better with the stresses of life. We make our apps as fun as possible to make it easy and enjoyable for you to use them consistently, as consistent use produces the best results.
We’re passionate about helping people. We love a challenge. We want to give people the tools to be able to help themselves whenever they want, wherever they want.
One of our founders is a UK trained psychiatrist who wanted to use his skills to help people around the world. He was part of the senior management team that grew one of the largest private hospital groups from 5 hospitals to 55 within only a few years, with highest scoring CQC reports and making an incredible name for himself—quite a feat. His motivation was to be able to help thousands more patients each year.
For Andres that still wasn’t enough. He worked out that in his lifetime as a doctor, he could hope to help around 16,000 patients—but patients whose conditions get so bad that they warrant a referral from the GP or have to be hospitalised. Why wasn’t there more help for prevention and treatment of the common conditions, to stop people from becoming so ill in the first place?
Partnering with Rich—a highly experienced games developer with a team based in the UK—they created clinically focused, evidence based games to treat and prevent common mental health conditions. By doing things digitally, we can help millions of people worldwide without the need to worry about stigma or judgement.
We’re passionate about helping people. We want to pass on our skills and experience through our apps to teach you how to overcome your problems.
Andres is a psychiatrist with almost 20 years of clinical experience. He believes the way mental health services work at the moment is very broken. Services are focused on intervening when people are in crisis, which is already too late. He believes therapeutic software that is fun to use is the way to help people Thrive.
Rich has been a games developer as long as Andres has been a doctor. He was part of the Core Design team that developed the original Tomb Raider games. He has a passion making games that not only will entertain but also improve people's health. He calls them 'good games for good'.
