Digital Healthcare Technology
MyHelp is building a novel digital solution for patients and therapists to use alongside traditional cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidenced based talking therapy that helps individuals to cope with mental health conditions. MyHelp hopes to provide a solution that increases access to services and the support available to individuals at the time when patients need it most, and are working with therapists to develop a tool to this end.
Why we like the business
1 in 4 people in the UK suffer a mental health problem each year in England (McManus et. al., 2009); this is expected to increase further to place additional burden on already strained mental health care pathways. Technology offers a way to increase efficiency, and enhance the patient experience of CBT. With systems such as MyHelp, there is the possibility to improve engagement with and outcomes from talking therapy to the benefit of individuals and healthcare systems.
