Our mission is to help millions live back to good mental health
The idea for Big Health was born when co-founder Peter Hames had trouble getting anything other than medication for his insomnia. He discovered Dr. Colin Espie’s book on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia, and realized what had worked for him could work for millions. Dr. Espie then became Peter’s co-founder, and together they created Big Health and its mission: to help millions back to good mental health.
Today, we’re charting the future of digital medicine. We combine leading clinical insight with the best in design and technology to provide a scalable approach that’s accessible to all — including communities traditionally underserved by mental health care. And we’re doing it with the backing of industry-leading peer-reviewed research and randomized controlled trials.
Our digital therapeutics have been recognized by some of the nation’s leading authorities in digital health, software innovation, mental health, and employee benefits.
