Spill was started by two friends who couldn’t believe how hard it was to access emotional support through the NHS, and how expensive it was through the private sector. Whether you’re suffering from a bereavement, feeling anxious, struggling with work and relationships, or just wanting to understand some of your thought patterns and habits, talking to a qualified professional is shown to work wonders — and we believe it should be a basic human right. Our aim is to smash down the barriers to accessing that support. We do that by working with organisations to make it free at the point of use for individuals, so that no one is excluded from getting support.
