The UK’s largest on-demand mental healthcare company has launched in York.

Onebright is working to provide personalised and on-demand mental healthcare services at scale by investing in clinical expertise and technology.

It has been formed through the acquisition and integration of three UK mental healthcare businesses - York-based CBT Clinics, along with Efficacy, and Moving Minds, both in London - with investment from EMK Capital.

Onebright has 270 employees, of whom 178 are in York. It uses technology to match the right clinicians to a patient to provide the right care and treatment from the start, and also provides rapid access to online, phone or face-to-face assessment for therapy.

The company has a network of more than 3,000 clinicians operating from about 2,000 UK locations, covering the full range of psychological therapies. This is complemented by an advanced and scalable technology platform.

Onebright supports private medical insurers, global companies, occupational health teams, group income protection providers, healthcare professionals and individuals.

Dean Webb, CEO of Onebright, said: “We are on a journey to become the leader in mental healthcare worldwide, and to set new standards in a sector that is fragmented and traditional in its approach.”

The company has secured its first international acquisition in Prescriba, Denmark’s main mental healthcare provider which supports private medical insurance providers and operates with around 100 staff, offering outpatient mental healthcare through a network of clinicians.

Onebright plans to extend its offering through further acquisitions and organic growth.

Dean added: “Bringing together three leading mental health companies and our first international acquisition in Prescriba, will allow us to grow a world-leading mental healthcare business, delivering personalised care with an all-encompassing goal of helping to build brighter futures for our clients, and helping clinicians to flourish in their private practice.

“The recent pandemic has increased the demand for effective mental healthcare as well as for new solutions to provide effective personalised care at scale. We're developing a data-driven whole-of-workforce mental health solution including diagnostics, consulting, therapy, coaching and self-help.

“We believe the advancement of mental health services needs sustained investment in clinical talent and technology if effective and personalised care is to be accessible to all.”

The business offers personalised and on-demand mental health services, delivering both face-to-face and digital mental health support at scale and in 49 languages.

It cares for more than 60,000 patients per year and counts more than 200 businesses as clients. It is the fastest growing provider of private outpatient mental health services, and the largest in the UK and Denmark for outpatient referrals.
