Our Story

Our founders first recognised the incredible potential of digital health treatments in 2011 when they connected their backgrounds in web development with efforts to improve their own mental health.

Wellmind Health has pioneered Digital Treatments as a Service (DTaaS) with our proprietary cloud-based DTaaS Platform, which is designed exclusively for scalable development, deployment and delivery of digital treatments.  

We take great pride in the outstanding user feedback our programs generate and the regulatory compliance accreditations they receive. Our drug-free digital treatments are class 1 medical devices and maintain the highest standards for clinical safety, data protection, technical security, interoperability, usability and accessibility. 

Many 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 digital treatments are here to help people take control and lead a better quality of life.

The Platform

Our highly specialised proprietary and cloud-based platform is unique. Designed exclusively for the scalable development, deployment and delivery of digital treatments and the reporting of their effectiveness with a new level of high-quality real-time clinical data.

The platform's user-friendly secure web-based Management Portal delivers best-in-class functionality and world-leading clinical data. It enables clinicians and therapists to manage program participants, monitor engagement and satisfaction in real time, and report on their self-assessed health outcomes using a variety of clinical outcome measurements at granular and aggregated levels.

Security, SAFETY AND INTEROPERABILITY

The Wellmind Platform complies with the regulatory standards for Class 1 medical device deployment in health and social care settings.

It offers a fully featured, extensible API, with role-based permissions that enable integration with healthcare systems. It's security-focused, cloud-based architecture adheres to strict security, compliance, and risk management controls.

"When we first started Prism, it was challenging for some clinicians to recognise the benefits of digital. Working with partners like Wellmind Health has changed all of that, because clinicians now have the reassurance that they can interact with the digital platforms to capture data and see exactly what's happening with each patient. The data we provide allows services to validate the effectiveness of these tools, providing clinicians and therapists the ability to accurately monitor their patients and have this data as part of a single patient record."

Director
Mayden

"Very easy to measure the impact and report results into our corporate health and safety group."

HR Business Partner
Guildford Borough Council

"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

"Pathway through Pain is now integral to our service. It improves the quality life of the patients we serve."

Consultant in Pain Medicine
Somerset NHS Foundation Trust

“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 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

“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!“

"The data we provide allows services to validate the effectiveness of these tools, providing clinicians and therapists the ability to accurately monitor their patients and have this data as part of a single patient record."

Director
Mayden Health

"The figures are at par with any of the pain management programmes running, or slightly better."

APP Pain Team Leader
Circle Health

"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

"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

"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."

Training Lead, Community Investment
Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing

"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

"The figures are at par with any of the pain management programmes running, or slightly better. The advantage of this kind of technology is that you don't have to see the patient every week - there is simply less of a requirement for direct patient contact. While closely monitored by their clinician, patients are empowered to learn and self-manage."

APP Pain Team Leader
Circle Health

"Pathway through Pain is what I call 'a strong tool', one that we can trust. Our clinicians, technology and projects team have all been involved in its onboarding, so we are very clear about its value. We're really pleased to have it available now as an integral component of our pain service."

APP Pain Team Leader
Circle Health

"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

"We always enjoyed speaking to the Wellmind Health technical team - having great conversations that explored possibilities and clarified exactly how the systems would work together. It's been a really enjoyable and productive partnership."

Implementation Coordinator
Mayden

"Making Be Mindful available to all our staff has provided a highly effective, self-help solution they can access anonymously and in their own time."

Occupational Health & Wellbeing Manager
Anglian Water

"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)

"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

"Meditainment is a no-brainer. With mental health being highlighted as a global issue, this solution has proven to be effective and dummy-proof; easy to set-up and easy to follow. I'd definitely recommend it."

Associate HR Manager
Reckitt ASEAN Regional Office

“We know that employee stress and anxiety can come from any angle – at both work and home – but we also know that talking therapies are not suited to everyone. Making Be Mindful available to all our staff has provided a highly effective, self-help solution they can access anonymously and in their own time.”

Occupational Health & Wellbeing Manager
Anglian Water

"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

"Having Pathway through Pain to access enabled us to move to a fully digital pathway."

Advanced Chronic Pain Practitioner
Kent Community Health NHS FT

"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

“The flexibility in the course delivery has been excellent, enabling staff to complete the lessons in their own time - and the results achieved by those completing have been very encouraging.”

Occupational Health & Wellbeing Manager
Anglian Water

"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

"Research on the impact of mindfulness on craving and trigger management has increased. Be Mindful is a vital element of our complementary CBT, mindfulness and wellness CTAC programme. It's proven efficacy, educational elements, and on-demand mobile nature are of huge value in supporting our clients."

Chief Clinical Quality Officer
Crossroads - USA

"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

"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."

Advanced Chronic Pain Practitioner
Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust

"Considering the fast-paced nature of our industry and the mental strains of the ongoing pandemic, we knew we needed to do something that would promote mental health among our employees. After demonstrating the platform to our internal 'ambassadors', it became clear that Meditainment would suit us perfectly."

Associate HR Manager
Reckitt ASEAN Regional Office

"I've had some good feedback from patients. It's particularly helpful as a precursor to a pain clinic referral as it's something they can start on immediately and I don't feel like I've just left them waiting."

Physio & Community Outpatients Lead & Advanced Practitioner Physio
HSIOW NHS Trust

"Activating someone on the programme is really quick, which is definitely helping with wait times."

Assistant Psychologist
Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

"We knew we needed to do something that would promote mental health among our employees. After demonstrating the platform to our internal 'ambassadors', it became clear that Meditainment would suit us perfectly."

Associate HR Manager ASEAN Regional Office
Reckitt

"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

"Be Mindful is great. Large reductions in client anxiety is a crucial outcome as it's a primary trigger of substance abuse. The solid research and data behind Be Mindful provided the validation we required to adopt it and our program results are fantastic."

Community Day Program Manager
Crossroads Arizona

"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

"The online service quickly became an important part of the pain management programme, sometimes as a stand alone intervention and sometimes alongside other courses of treatment."
