About Greenspace Mental Health

Greenspace ( is transforming mental health systems by improving the way that care is accessed, measured and delivered.

Greenspace is a growth stage technology startup with offices in Toronto and Kelowna. Since launching in 2016, the platform has been deployed across thousands of mental health practices and organizations and expanding across Canada and the US.

Mental illness has passed HIV/Aids, malaria and diabetes as the leading cause of disability in the world. While there is no cure, psychotherapy is the most cost and clinically effective form of treatment. Greenspace has developed solutions that draw on technology and clinical research to improve patient outcomes within this traditional psychotherapy model.

Our Measurement Platform enables mental health providers and organizations to implement consistent evidence-based measurement into their practice. Our Intake Module facilitates a more effective referral into mental health and addictions services. Our Self-Guided Module is a population health solution that provides mental health support directly to individuals in various settings. We recently helped develop and launch Wellness Together Canada ( - a major initiative funded and launched by Health Canada to provide virtual mental health and substance use support for all Canadians through COVID-19.
