We help employees to lead more fulfilling and balanced lives by changing the way organisations think about mental health.
Our mental health is determined by many aspects of life. From physical fitness to sleep, friendship networks to family relationships, self-esteem to mindset. None of these areas are fixed, and they’ll evolve and change for each of us throughout our lives.
Mental health is often misunderstood. Traditionally we only hear of it when there’s a problem. When helplines are offered. Or counselling is needed. Far from a problem, mental health – like physical health – is something that should be proactively nurtured.
We believe people lead more fulfilling lives and organisations perform best when mental health is understood, nurtured, and celebrated. That’s why we’ve created a platform that empowers employees to measurably improve their mental health by giving them the right care at the right time.
As a lead clinical psychologist in the NHS in 2015, Dr Nick Taylor faced the challenges of managing absenteeism, presenteeism, and turnover among highly pressured frontline staff.
Determined to find a solution, Nick discovered that, by combining clinical science with corporate wellness, organisations could help their teams to proactively nurture their own mental health, and in turn boost productivity. Pretty soon, what was intended as a strategy for supporting NHS workers became a compelling business case for helping companies across the world to solve some of their greatest challenges.
Fast-forward a year and Nick had teamed up with Ry Morgan, a serial startup founder with lived mental ill-health experience, Nick Tong, an entrepreneurial technologist, and Steve Peralta, a leading corporate wellbeing practitioner. With an experiential understanding of the meaning of good mental health, Ry shaped the product. With a technical background, Tong helped build the platform. With a deep knowledge of personal and organisational development, rooted in philosophy, Steve spearheaded the content strategy. Together the four shaped the ‘whole-person approach’ to supporting mental health at work.
In 2016, they launched Unmind. Today, the platform helps drive performance for organisations around the world, while empowering people to lead healthier, happier lives.
Unmind is home to a curious, smart, and compassionate bunch, united behind the vision of a world where mental health is universally understood, nurtured, and celebrated. If that sounds interesting to you, see our openings below.
