Orpheus - Negative Emotion Destroyers

Orpheus is an innovative new app that is changing the way that its users combat negative mental health, addictions, anxiety, and stress. It has been tested with front line NHS workers to help them with anxiety and to feel less stressed in their job during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"My mind felt a lot clearer and I felt more in control of my emotions, which helped me a lot at work and at home. At the time I felt stressed and anxious and now that's totally gone!"

In England, around 1 in 8 men have a common mental health problem. Research has found that men are more reluctant to seek support for their mental health. Orpheus is easily accessible and available 24/7 wherever users are in the world. Men’s Mental Health Week is 15-21st June 2020.

Peter Owen, Orpheus’ Chief Technology Officer, says “Orpheus is completely different from mindfulness apps. It targets and destroys negative thoughts and feelings and it also has dedicated modules for people who are concerned about drugs, alcohol, gambling, smoking and overeating.”

Owen continues, “Although we know that the stigma surrounding mental health is changing, societal pressures and traditional gender roles still play a part on how society views mental health problems in men. We wanted to make therapy available for all and we know that due to the coronavirus, a lot of people are worried, so we’ve included a specific module for Coronavirus, which helps create calm, as well as bespoke advice on specific topics relating to these times.”

Created by school friends, David Jay and Peter Owen who have both suffered with their own mental health issues over the years - Orpheus is available to all, and during the coronavirus pandemic, it is available at a reduced rate. New features have been added following a beta test and soft launch in February 2020.
