A Note from eQuoo

Purpose-built for students and staff in education, eQuoo is a team of psychologists, mental health advocates and creatives with a shared passion for improving the mental wellbeing of all students. Mental health is more relevant than ever, especially in young adults but getting support is costly, with long waiting times and associated stigma. That’s why we’ve built a state-of-the-art app, accessible at any time, with the most robust reporting system so that every student and staff member can build the best versions of themselves.

"We are here for your students  We understand the pressures and challenges Schools and Colleges face and the growing wellbeing interventions needed to support students. Our mission, via our clinically proven solutions, is to build the resilience and mental health of UK students, reducing interventions and helping them become the best versions of themselves. "
