Just as many other employee services have gone digital, so is mental health. In the consumer space there are growing startups such as Equoo, but now the career for the employee.

And since telemedicine has gone digital and video-based, so is the provision of mental health. Several companies are already playing in this space, including Spill Chat, On Mind, Lyra Health, Modern Health, Ginger, and TalkSpace For Business.

Made of olives Taking this on is not to create a marketplace or pre-recorded videos, but to put trained professionals in front of employees to speak directly to them. And there are even Sciences to back it up. In fact, some research suggests that psychotherapy over the Internet it’s so good if not better than face-to-face consultations.

Oliva’s professional-led, on-demand mental health care for employees and managers has now attracted investments in the sum of a $ 2.2 million pre-seed investment round, led by Moonfire ventures, the new seed-stage venture capital firm of Atomico co-founder Mattias Ljungman.

The UK and Spain-based startup has also attracted angel investment from tech executives from Amazon, Booking.com, DogBuddy, Typeform, Hotjar, TravelPerk and more.

Oliva is founded by Javier Suarez, who previously co-founded TravelPerk, and Sançar Sahin, who previously led the marketing teams at Hotjar and Typeform, so they both have good startup blood.

Suárez says he was inspired to create a mental health startup after the rigors of TravelPerk: “Employees are a company’s greatest asset – the better they feel, the better your company performs. But organizations are not set up to support the mental health of their employees in and out of the workplace, creating a huge problem for teammates, managers, and the organization as a whole. We have launched Oliva to give employees access to comprehensive online mental health care and to help organizations overcome related challenges, from attracting and retaining talent and training managers to supporting remote workers. “

Privacy is addressed through the use of a secure and encrypted personal portal, where employees can chat with a care provider who links them to a professional. They receive 1-on-1 video therapy sessions from a variety of mental health professionals and can also track your progress.

The team also attracted Dr. Sarah Bateup, who has spent more than two decades teaching and training mental health professionals, who is now Clinical Director.

She said: “Oliva improves the way mental health care is accessed, supported and paid for, while adding more oversight and accountability to the process. Our ambition is for Oliva to be seen as a badge of quality and establish a new standard for mental health in the workplace. “

Mattias Ljungman, founder of Moonfire Ventures, added: “Mental health has been an overlooked area of ​​care and wellness, especially in the workplace. Oliva’s founders are the only team we’ve seen taking a holistic, impact-driven approach to supporting mental health. While employer-funded mental health is becoming a well-established model in the US, Oliva is the first to bring a truly comprehensive approach to UK and European businesses. “

The Oliva platform is integrated with Slack, providing employees with mental health care sessions, therapy courses, and dedicated training and support for managers.
