We're Ben and Will, the founders of Bolster.
We came together through a shared mission to help those experiencing mental ill-health.
We both have loved ones who have struggled with mental ill-health, and we have both relied on those closest to us when we have been in distress.
We know first hand the frustration and desperation that comes with mental ill-health, for everyone involved. That's why we are building something to help not just those experiencing it, but supporters too.
With a decade of start up experience, Ben took the award-winning challenger skincare brand Bulldog from launch through scale up to a global player, exiting in 2016.
At the very top of government, Will spent four and a half years advising Theresa May, as Home Secretary and Prime Minister, and helped design the Government’s mental health strategy.
