Dutch digital mental health firm sets up Manchester base
Telepsy, a mental health diagnostics company has set up its new UK headquarters in Manchester.
A team of 15 will be based in the city, including psychologists, eHealth developers and marketing.
The company is based in Maastricht and Berlin and develops “user-friendly interventions”, questionnaires and treatment to improve mental health. Last year 200k patients were treated with its software.
“TelePsy decided on Manchester because it provides us with a very welcoming and ambitious environment that has a lot of potential for innovative companies like ours. Costs are relatively low compared with the cities in the south but the opportunities are equal,” explained UK head Jaime Essed.
“Manchester will be the base from which TelePsy will grow in the UK. Together with universities, clinics and CCG’s we will create mental health interventions that are customised to the needs of UK mental health practitioners.”
