Our Story

From our UK and US offices, the Wellmind Health team is dedicated to providing high-quality digital interventions that make a real and lasting impact on real lives. Our founders first recognised the incredible potential of digital mental health training in 2002 when they connected their backgrounds in web production with efforts to improve their own mental health.

We take great pride in the incredible user feedback our courses generate and the high level of clinical validity they receive. Our founding library of guided meditations, Meditainment, has enjoyed outstanding reviews for nearly two decades and is an integral part of Pathway through Pain. Digital therapeutics Be Mindful and Pathway through Pain both passed the DAQ2 health app assessment which sets rigorous NHS quality standards for clinical effectiveness, safety, security, usability and accessibility. They are also the top-rated apps for depression and chronic pain respectively on ORCHA’s AppFinder, the world’s leading digital health evaluation organisation, with Be Mindful also joint top-rated for anxiety and stress.

Millions of people experience mental health issues each year and suffer from chronic pain on a daily basis. Depression, stress, anxiety and chronic pain take their toll. They have a deep impact on individual lives, careers and futures, affect partners and family members, and require significant levels of care and support from health services. Whether accessed via clinicians, employers or by individuals themselves, our courses are here to help people take control and lead a better quality of life.

“Pathway through Pain is a core element of our service. Patients don’t have to wait for treatments to fail before they are offered the programme - very often they go on the programme after just 1 or 2 sessions of seeing us.”

Consultant in Pain Medicine
Somerset NHS Foundation Trust

"I call it a gold standard. We frequently quote the user feedback because the reviews we receive are profoundly moving. Some people achieve a recovery using Be Mindful that would be almost difficult for any clinical service to achieve."

Clinical Director
Good Thinking

"Be Mindful is extremely helpful for our clients. It is a great relapse prevention measure and I have had reports that they continue to practice long after the programme has finished. As for the support from Be Mindful admin, it is second to none."

Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner
Rotherham IAPT - RDaSH NHS Foundation Trust

"One clear reason for opting for Be Mindful is that it had evidently been tried and tested and had received medical validation. It's also very easy to measure the impact and report results into our corporate health and safety group."

HR Business Partner
Guildford Borough Council

"The online programme enables patients to engage with education quickly. Since COVID-19, it really has been a godsend. Following government guidelines, our face-to-face programme had to be suspended and having Pathway through Pain to access enabled us to move to a fully digital pathway, while incorporating psychoeducation."

Advanced Chronic Pain Practitioner
Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust

"Be Mindful is a really helpful and creative way for us to appeal to a wider client demographic within our IAPT service. Clients have benefitted from being able to access a structured online course in the comfort of their own home. We have been really pleased with the service and would recommend to other IAPT providers."

Assistant Clinical Director
Faversham Counselling Service

"We currently have a pilot programme in operation, the system is easy to use for administration/enrolment of participants and our nominated contact Rebecca is always available for assistance and is very helpful"

HR Officer
Durham County Council

"I've found the uptake of Be Mindful to be excellent. The provider is extremely efficient & accommodating. The platform allows me to see participant progress & engagement with simple reporting, saves me time & demonstrates impact to commissioners. Most importantly, practitioners find it a useful tool to move people closer to work by helping them better manage their mental health"

Service Manager & Lead Senior Health Advisor
Ingeus Work and Health Programme

"With its listing on the NHS Apps Library, an RCT showing significant efficacy, and a track record of NHS commissions, and with real benefits associated with primary care referral, Be Mindful was a priority of ours for listing on the EMIS Apps Library. We're very much looking forward to help scale the benefits of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy"

Co-Lead & Associate Director
AppScript by IQVIA

"Engaging in the Pathway through Pain programme has absolutely been a positive change in the way that we work. Activating someone on the programme is really quick, and it's quite easy which is definitely helping with wait times."

Assistant Psychologist
Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

"We've provided staff with a whole range of mental health support resources, including Be Mindful. One of the driving forces at the start was the flexibility of the Be Mindful programme, allowing people to self-manage, and do it when it fits them best."

HR Business Partner
Guildford Borough Council

"Be Mindful has enabled clients at Inclusion Thurrock to access mindfulness in a way that suits them and fits into their lives. Wellmind have been supportive in the integration of Be Mindful into our service and have continued to be there with quick responses to any queries along the way."

CfD Counsellor & cCBT Co-ordinator
Inclusion Thurrock (NHS MPFT)

“What's amazing for me is that once people have learned these Mindfulness techniques, they keep using them. Receiving so many stories of participants’ lived experience is also really important. It's not just about statistical measurements, it's actually making a significant difference to someone’s life.”

Clinical Director
Good Thinking

"Pathway through Pain is now integral to our pain service. It improves the quality of life of the patients we serve - and its improved my quality of life no end; I don’t tell patient after patient the same thing time and again in my clinic - the course does it for me!"

Consultant in Pain Medicine
Somerset NHS Foundation Trust

"Always a quick response from the administrators if needing additional support or support for clients. Issues dealt with promptly and effectively (although there aren't many). Clients tell us it is easy to use, although at times 'challenging' (in that the material 'opens their eyes' to different opportunities to experience good mental health). All round good service and value of money"

Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner
Rotherham IAPT - RDaSH NHS Foundation Trust

"The staff at Wellmind Health have been a pleasure to work with, their service has been first class - prompt, professional and personable. The course has been well received by my colleagues and our customers who have completed it."

“Pathway through Pain is now integral to our pain service. It improves the quality of life of the patients we serve - and its improved my quality of life no end; I don’t tell patient after patient the same thing time and again in my clinic - the course does it for me!“

Consultant in Pain Medicine
Somerset NHS Foundation Trust

"Pathway through Pain has opened up a cohort of patients we weren't able to access previously. Housebound patients with internet access are now able to benefit from a virtual pain pathway and PTP is important in their psychoeducation."
