Software-based mental health treatments
Iona Mind is building the first FDA approved digital treatment for anxiety and depression. Our products are based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), one of the most effective evidence-based forms of treatment, which is delivered in a fully automated way using a conversational interface. Unlike other wellbeing apps, our exercises and programs are evidence-based, with over 300 peer reviewed journal papers showing the efficacy of CBT in the treatment of many common mental health conditions. Our mental wellness app is currently available through the App and Play stores and helps thousands of people all over the world. We also support employers in providing evidence-based mental health support to all their staff. Our founding team includes Professor Paul Farrand, one of the world's leading experts in Low-Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and one of the architects of the modern mental health system in the UK and Philip Howson who was CTO of XTX Markets - one of the world’s largest algorithmic trading firms.
