Our story

After wrestling with bipolar throughout their twenties, Nick and James learned the hard way that optimising their mental fitness had a hugely positive impact on their lives.

Ed meanwhile worked for years in a corporate environment and saw countless friends and colleagues suffer from burnout.

They realised that mental fitness should be a priority for all, and knew from experience that taking action early can prevent suffering in the long run. So they created Minderful.
