We’re very pleased to welcome Wellmind Media as the latest online therapy provider to join Prism.

Mental health services face enormous pressure, and demand continues to increase. It is estimated that by 2030, there will be around 2 million more adults in the UK suffering with mental health problems. The NHS find new and innovative ways of working in order to reach those in need. Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) services are embracing online therapies as part of their offering to patients.

We created Prism to ease IAPT capacity issues, waiting lists and service costs, while providing patients with increased access to a wider range of treatment via established online therapy services. The system enables therapists to seamlessly and securely refer appropriate patients to online therapy providers for treatment. All related progress notes and outcome data is then transmitted directly back into the patient’s NHS record in iaptus, the record management system used by around 70% of IAPT services.

Wellmind Media Ltd is a team of researchers, writers, producers and programmers based in Brighton. The company offers engaging, informative and enjoyable online mental health training programmes that help and empower participants to manage pain, stress, anxiety and depression. Studies from leading academic institutions have found Wellmind programmes to be effective training for patients looking to improve their self-management skills.

“Wellmind is a great addition to Prism,” says Chris Eldridge, Director of Operations. “Their programmes are engaging, easy to follow and easy to apply to daily life, as well as being backed by a wealth of studies. We are very pleased to be able to add them to the growing catalogue of online providers now available via Prism.”

“Prism is a truly ground breaking system for improving patient access to psychological therapies and Wellmind Media is proud to be part of it,” says Richard Latham, Managing Director.  “I’m especially looking forward to seeing our programmes perform on Prism, as one of its key features is the in-depth measurement of patient outcomes.”
