Who we are

We are on a mission to make mental well-being accessible to everyone. At OpenUp, we support companies, their employees and the families of employees with mental well-being. Via our OpenUp platform, employees and their families receive direct access to health checks, self-help programs, group sessions and webinars, mindfulness training and a large team of recognized psychologists. Via our core values ‘we care about you’, ‘we make it happen’ and ‘we love growth’ we build high performance teams in which people develop themselves to their fullest potential.

OpenUp is part of the LinkedIn Top Startups 2023 and is rapidly growing. We are expanding our international teams and we search for like-minded talent. We are already helping over 1.000+ (international) companies and their employees, e.g. Rituals, Deloitte, Decathlon, Miele, KPMG, Adyen and McDonalds. We are the Dutch and German market leader. But that’s not enough to achieve our mission: We aim to become the number one mental health partner in the whole of Europe.
