Nuro Retention and Kooth join forces to deliver the first higher education mental health screening and services solution 

CHICAGO, IL. (March 3, 2022) – Nuro Retention has partnered with Kooth (AIM:KOO), the digital mental health platform to deliver a comprehensive mental wellbeing solution for higher education.

Founded in 2001, Kooth is the UK’s largest digital mental health platform. A pioneering innovator in digital behavioral health care, it delivers clinically proven, and research-evidenced therapies for those dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health and wellbeing concerns. Through this partnership with Nuro Retention, it is bringing its robust heritage to universities in the U.S., providing a safe and confidential space to share experiences, engage with an active community and receive support from qualified professionals.

With extensive peer-reviewed research, hundreds of therapists and over ten million lives covered, Kooth is the UK’s largest digital wellbeing mental health platform and is now bringing their proven experience to Universities in the U.S. 

Kevin Winters, General Manager, Kooth America said: “The pandemic has brought mental wellbeing issues to the forefront of every conversation on university campuses around the world. Kooth is in the unique position of having decades of experience and unmatched research to apply to mental health issues. 

“We are encouraged by results we have reviewed with Nuro Retention and its Discovery Survey which is designed to screen for the likelihood of mental health issues. This partnership provides colleges and universities with end-to-end services for students”.

Brian Dowdell, CEO of Nuro Retention commented: “In Kooth we have found the ideal extension of our Discovery Surveys to bring to our higher education clients. Throughout 2021 we worked with thousands of students to screen for mental wellbeing issues and found that depression and anxiety are impacting all types of students regardless of academic performance or even progression towards their degree. In Kooth we have a clinically robust model that complements our data-driven surveys”. 

With nearly 20 years of experience, Kooth enables organizations to deliver clinically validated digital therapy care that improves outcomes, increases access while reducing costs.
