Update on strategic progress

New contract in Greater Manchester to cover approx. two million people

Further expansion of support for all groups in England and Scotland

Kooth, the UK's leading digital mental health platform, announces positive momentum for its strategy to expand its mental health support throughout the UK to people of all ages in 2022.

Supporting the population of Greater Manchester

Kooth has secured a contract to support the adult population of Greater Manchester. This builds on Kooth's success in supporting 10- to 18-year-olds in the region, and will make professional mental health support available free to the population of nearly 2 million people.

Adult population expansion

Kooth has further expanded its mental health support for the adult population across the UK with contract wins in Norfolk, Warwickshire and the Wirral. Kooth already provides support for children and young people (11- to 18-year-olds) in these regions.

Scotland expansion: Supporting Children and Young People ("CYP")

Kooth has continued to expand its platform for CYP into devolved nations, with commissions in Aberdeenshire, Borders, Clackmannanshire, Falkirk, Highland, and Western Isles.

These contracts are anticipated to add over GBP1m to Kooth's ARR during the course of 2022 as part of the Board's existing growth plan.

Tim Barker, Chief Executive Officer of Kooth, said :

"I am proud that Kooth is helping adult populations with mental health in Greater Manchester which builds on our presence throughout the UK. In Scotland I'm pleased to announce a significant extension of our presence in supporting children and young people. Our mission is simple: to create a welcoming space for effective personalised digital mental health care - accessible for all. Our progress is possible because of our first-rate team, and the clinically-validated benefit our services offer people of all ages."
