THE UNMIND LAB
We're bringing together academic, clinical and industry expertise to make a real impact. We continually evolve our platform and are committed to publishing all research, regardless of the results.
what we do
The Unmind research roadmap is made up of three distinct strands:
We developed our research roadmap in collaboration with our academic partners.
We conduct randomised controlled trials (RCT) of our platform. We look at the mental health and wellbeing of employees who use it, as well as wider organisational outcomes.
We study the impact of Unmind post-launch with our clients, ensuring that our efficacy findings translate to real-world settings.
Our platform features reliable, credible and robust measures of mental health and wellbeing. We also think globally – by validating our tools for use across territories.
40% of participants reported clinically important improvement in depressive symptoms, compared to just 7.9% in the control group.(02)
Our low mood study compared three Unmind Courses to a control group who weren’t given access to Unmind. We found reduced depressive symptoms and improved wellbeing after completing a Course, as well as at a four week follow-up.
16.5% reduction in presenteeism for participants experiencing sleep difficulties, compared to 3% in a control group.(03)
We trialled our sleep solutions (Nightwaves & Sleep Tales) with participants experiencing sleep difficulties. Groups who used Unmind for four weeks had improved sleep quality, wellbeing and productivity compared to the control group.
