We believe that good mental health is a human right and therefore support should be accessible and affordable to all.

For people living with a mental health disorder in high-income countries, only 50% to 65% receive any treatment. This sinks even lower to between just 15% and 24% in low- and middle-income countries.

We want health equality for all.

We know that the emotional support model doesn’t work well enough, especially for those from a lower socio-economic background. We want to change this by offering affordable bespoke solutions that enable people to tackle stress, anxiety and depression.

We love sharing our stories with you.

Our team of in-house writers are also part of the clinical or research teams here at NISAD so we can bring you a unique perspective on how we see things changing for the future of mental health.

What would you say to your 15 year old self?

Let us at the NISAD Team take you with us on a time travel to our teenage selves and read about what we would tell our younger selves if we could talk to them.

We are developing ground-breaking support to help people
change harmful behaviours that can have a negative impact on
long-term mental and physical health
into beneficial behaviours that have a positive impact.

We are a team of innovative scientists, researchers & therapists working with behaviour change.

We all share a passion, to improve the long-term mental health of our global population.

We are a new and growing organisation made up of caring, visionary, credible and compassionate people including biomedical scientists, and therapeutic clinicians who are not bound by 20th century conventions and who embrace curiosity, kindness, diversity, equality and inclusion in finding new and better solutions to old problems.

OUR VISION

A world where people can live their healthiest and happiest lives by being emotionally and physically fit and well.

Our Solutions

We research and develop innovative and nuanced programmes, games and apps.

Story-based Clinical Approach
Through our research findings, we have discovered that story-based interventions, and the encouragement of mindful practice, can lead to long-term beneficial behaviour change. We also research effective ways of ensuring as many people as possible get the support they need.

OUR MISSION

To radically change how emotional health is valued, achieved and maintained to make it equal in importance to physical health and for support to be clinically-backed, research-based, effective, affordable and easily available to all.

Our Research

We are revolutionising old models of laboratory diagnostics, through curiosity and fresh-thinking.

NISAD specialises in the common ground that includes both biomedical science and advanced behavioural psychology.

To do this, we have our own specialist research arm, concentrating purely on body chemistries, called NISAD-MAP led by Professor Ray Iles.
NISAD-MAP is fighting to address the limitations and drawbacks in current clinical diagnostics.
