At Big Health, our purpose is to help millions back to good mental health. 

We do this by creating digital therapeutics: Daylight™, for worry & anxiety, and Sleepio™, for poor sleep - fully automated cognitive and behavioral programs that are scalable and clinically validated. They combine the intimacy of the human voice, engaging animation, and clinically rigorous techniques to help people overcome their mental health challenges.

Big Health’s products are backed by 50 published clinical papers including 13 randomized controlled trials (RCTs), and are cited in leading clinical guidelines including the American College of Physicians and NICE.

Today, over 12 million people worldwide have reimbursed access to Big Health’s products, via leading employers in the US and the UK’s NHS.
