Creating automated behavioral programs scalable enough to help everyone in need: Big Health

Mental health is all about how and what we think, feel and act as we face life’s situations. Our mental health affects how we handle stress, how we fight anxiety, and how we manage our daily lives and make decisions. It influences the way we look at ourselves. Like physical health, mental health is equally important at every stage of life.

Just like physical health, our mental health too is an obligation to protect. Especially, due to the pandemic, mental health of millions of people has gone for a toss. During this time, it is very important that you look after mental health.

Stating the purpose, Big Health is here to help millions get back to good mental health. The company does this by creating fully-automated and highly personalized digital therapeutics for mental health. Designed by leading clinical experts, its solutions feature cognitive and behavioral techniques — Sleepio™ for helping individuals address poor sleep, and Daylight™ for helping individuals address worry and anxiety.

With offices in London and San Francisco, its products are used by large multinational employers and major health plans to help improve sleep and mental health. To date, more than 12 million people across 60+ countries have access to Sleepio or Daylight.
