At Big Health, our mission is to help millions back to good mental health. Our digital therapeutics - Daylight™ for worry and anxiety - and Sleepio™ for poor sleep - are fully automated cognitive and behavioral programs that are as scalable and clinically validated as drugs (including being backed by 50 published clinical papers including 13 randomized controlled trials). Our software combines the intimacy of the human voice, engaging animation, and clinically rigorous techniques to help people overcome their mental health challenges. 

We're hiring a Senior Communications Manager to work closely with our founders and leadership to help shape the Big Health brand.

    • Generate media starts looking for Big Health’s and Peter’s perspective on news/stories related to mental health solutions or the mental health crisis
    • Synchronize content and comms so we have a resource of published content that supports outward facing storylines/pitches
