In 2020, my brother took his life. I had many questions, but the question that i kept asking myself, “why did he not get the support he needed?”
I started to research the way people receive mental health support in the UK, and I was shocked at what I discovered. According to Mind, only 1 in 8 people with severe mental health conditions are receiving treatment.
One of those seven people not receiving treatment was my relative. I want this to change. And this is why I gathered a group of tech experts and qualified therapists early in 2020 to discuss how we might provide an ongoing, always-on platform for people who need help using the technology that is accessible and data driven to provide instant and on-going support.
Mental health services are failing the majority of the people who need therapeutic support. For everyone else, there’s SupportRoom.
I am not a therapist but my number one mission is to transform how we support employees and transition organisations into people first businesses.
