Hello! Nice to meet you
Our Story

Why we created Tacklit
We believe innovation can drive positive change. Our team have successfully worked together previously to solve big problems with technology. We are passionate about helping improve mental health.
The world is facing an ever increasing mental health crisis

One in five (20%) Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year. In fact it's a leading cause of ill-health and disability worldwide. This results in huge negative personal, social and economic impact. In Australia alone the annual cost of mental illness is $220 Billion.

From the initial realisation that help was needed to then accessing care; it was difficult to find the right program and practitioner. Even during treatment, it was hard to get the right support along the way. Read more about Rich's journey.

The care ecosystem is complex. Tools haven't kept up.

Practitioners and practices are being asked to do more, and all existing technology seems to fall short. Data and insight on what works for who, in what scenario, is lacking. Meaning the ability to optimise the system and improve outcomes is inhibited.

"Depression is one of the leading causes of disability. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds. People with severe mental health conditions die prematurely – as much as two decades early – due to preventable physical conditions."

World Health Organization


"Mental ill-health affects all Australians either directly or indirectly. Almost one in five Australians has experienced mental illness in a given year. Many do not receive the treatment and support they need."
