Over the past few years a spotlight has been shone on mental health. Unfortunately, there's still a stigma attached to it and when people do take the plunge and reach out for help, it isn't as accessible as it could be.
glyde was born to connect you with trained therapists who will help you make sense of life's bumps and dips. We want you to glide (or 'glyde' as we like to spell it) through life.
glyde was founded by a group of technologists, professionals and entrepreneurs whose families, friends and organisations had been profoundly affected by mental health issues.
The idea came from them wanting to help the people they love and work with, but not knowing where or who to turn to. Exasperated with wait times, tired and frustrated by corporate assistance programs, they knew there must be a better way.
They wanted to create something positive that could have a huge impact on both individuals and the organisations they work in.
“You shouldn’t have to live in a big city, have to take time off work, or wait three months for an appointment to speak to a therapist. With glyde, you just need a phone and somewhere comfortable to chat. We hope you like what we're doing, and if you have any feedback .” Spencer Scher, founder of glyde
