TalkLife’s Jamie Druitt and Jennifer Russell are trailblazing pioneers in digital mental health support, and their journey to revolutionize mental health earns them a finalist spot at the 2023 Great British Entrepreneur Awards.

Jamie Druitt and Jennifer Russell are the co-founders behind TalkLife, an innovative company on a mission to revolutionize mental health support. TalkLife builds online peer-to-peer communities for people to get instant ongoing support for life’s challenges. 

Jamie created TalkLife in 2014 after struggling with his own mental health and noticing a lack of accessible support. He believed mental health support should break down barriers like stigma and waiting times. Jamie built a community where people could open up without judgment and grew it into an award-winning intelligent peer support platform spanning 125 countries and millions of lives.

As pioneers in digital mental health, TalkLife has grown from a startup into a strong, innovative company. Combining world-class technology, design, and clinical excellence, TalkLife provides a place for people to share how they really feel and get instant 24/7 support. Studies show over 70% of users feel less isolated and 82% feel more understood. One user said: “I’ve never talked to anyone about some of the things I have said on the app. It feels great to talk to people without judgement.”

TalkLife’s vision is that nobody should struggle with mental health alone. They plan to expand their reach and build products people want to use. Pushing innovation, TalkLife partners with leaders in digital mental health to keep learning and bringing people together.
