About Us

Miricyl was founded in 2017 with the aim of increasing Mental Illness Research in Children and Young Lives, a Miricyl. Our CEO started by investigating the UK’s £5bn per year of health research funding. During the course of our campaigning on this UK Research and Innovation, the UK’s largest funder, announced a £35 million investment in adolescent mental health in 2019 and a further £24 million in 2021.

In 2020 Miricyl’s focus shifted to developing digital solutions for young people’s mental health. There is a large gap between the number of young people affected by mental illness and the resources available to help them. Of the 1.7 million young people affected by mental illness 2 out of 3 are not receiving NHS treatment. We want to fill that gap.
