About Greenspace Mental Health

Greenspace (www.greenspacehealth.com) is transforming mental health systems through the use of data, collaboration and transparency; enabling healthcare providers to help their patients get better and stay better.

Mental illness has passed HIV/Aids, malaria and diabetes as the leading cause of disability in the world. While there is no cure, psychotherapy is the most cost and clinically effective form of treatment. Greenspace has developed solutions that draw on technology and clinical research to improve patient outcomes within this traditional psychotherapy model.

We are an early stage company based in Kelowna and Toronto. Since launching in 2016, the platform has been adopted by tens of thousands of therapists and patients and growing rapidly across Canada and the US. Having secured multiple rounds of financing, Greenspace is backed by a group of industry leading advisors, including Mary Deacon (the Chair of Bell Let’s Talk), Dr. Vicky Stergiopoulos (Chief Psychiatrist at CAMH) and Dr. Ryan Van Wert (CMO of Vynca and a Clinical Instructor of medicine at Stanford University).
