Mental Health Innovations (MHI) is a charity that uses digital innovation, data-driven analysis and the experience of clinical experts to improve the mental health of the UK population through the provision of digital tools, support and resources.
Our first service, Shout 85258, the free, confidential, 24/7 text messaging support service that saves lives. Shout Volunteers have taken more than 700,000 conversations with people who are anxious, stressed, depressed, suicidal or overwhelmed and who need immediate support. As a digital service, Shout 85258 has become increasingly critical since Covid-19, being one of the few mental health support services able to operate as normal at this time.Mental Health Innovations uses anonymised data insight from Shout usage and our clinical expertise to both refine the Shout service and also to help us design and develop innovative new digital tools and products to meet evidence-based areas of need and improve the mental health of the UK population.
