“Our winning entry was chosen from 300 entries judged by a panel of distinguished experts in digital health media.
“Unlike other platforms, users can manage each step in their therapy journey - getting pre-therapy information, finding a therapist, booking an appointment and paying for therapy - securely online, without a subscription and within the space of a few minutes.
“The mental health industry needs accessible, personalised and affordable treatment, and industry leading tech is a great way to achieve this.”
Harley Therapy’s particular focus on preemptive help bucks the trend in the mental health technology space. They offer wellbeing talks to organisations to help employees prevent their mental health deteriorating. The platform includes a free-to-access blog to de-stigmatise therapy and offer information on emotional wellbeing. In addition, they operate a youtube channel featuring answers to their blog readers’ burning questions about mental health and therapy. Alongside this information, they offer appointments as soon as 24 hours away. Why is this so important? Because accessing care before you have reached crisis point increases the chance of a fully successful recovery.
