Who we are

We are on a mission to make mental health accessible to everyone. At OpenUp, we support companies creating an open workplace in the field of mental health. Via our OpenUp platform, employees receive direct access to a large team of recognized psychologists, health checks, self-help programs, masterclasses, mindfulness sessions, and more content on mental health.

Our people make OpenUp a great place to work. We love working together and learning from each other. We value an inclusive culture where everyone can be themselves at work. One thing we all have in common: we have a positive mindset.

We are already helping over 350+ (international) companies, e.g. Rituals, HelloFresh, PwC, Picnic and Mr. Spex. We are the Dutch market leader. But that’s not enough to achieve our mission: We thrive to become the number one mental healthcare partner in the whole of Europe. 

That's why we are expanding our international publishing team and are looking for like-minded talent.
