Why we exist
The world is in the midst of silent crisis of epic proportion. Despite increased awareness and investment over the last decade, the mental health of the human species is going backwards. It is estimated that 1 in 4 people experience a clinical grade mental health episode every year. People in every school, workplace and community are suffering, mostly in silence, sometimes until it is too late. Things will continue to get worse with the fallout of the global pandemic, and as the impact of social media drives a growing mental health epidemic in our teenager and young adult population. We are hopelessly ill prepared to face what is coming. People look after people. Human connection is at the heart of preventing and addressing mental ill health. Our frontline mental health workers are empathetic and hardworking, however they lack the tools to amplify their impact to the level required to face the onslaught. We lack tools to monitor mental health and identify those in need early. Once people reach crisis point, the recovery effort can be significant. There are 450 people in need for each trained professional so with our traditional 1:1 models there is no chance everyone will get the support they need. Things are made worse as our frontline workers are hampered by inefficient manual processes and paperwork. Worst of all, there is a widespread absence of outcome data to ensure our efforts are working, to match people in need with the right interventions, and to ensure community resources are directed to where it matters most. We are poorly equipped and we are flying blind. We are building an operating system for mental health care. At Tacklit we believe it doesn’t need to be this way. We imagine a world where the technology and data capability that helps people is as powerful as the one that sends us into anxiety-inducing social media rabbit holes. We are building a platform which will empower our mental health workers to monitor wellbeing and detect issues early. It will use evidence-based data to match right-sized interventions, both 1:1 and 1 to many, and both inside and across organisations. It will drive patient engagement and therapeutic alliance. It will measure impact so that individual therapists, programs and whole organisations can learn and get better at supporting their people. It will not replace the humans who deliver the services today; it will empower them and amplify their impact. This is personal for us Our co-founder Rich has his own lived experience. From the initial realisation that help was needed to then accessing care; it was difficult to find the right program and practitioner. Even during treatment, it was hard to get the right support along the way. Our goal is to make a difference for those who are in similar need of good support. Read more about Rich's journey.
To create the world’s first end-to-end operating system for mental health care delivery. This allows providers to re-imagine care delivery, get greater visibility on risks and performance, and make data-driven decisions.
