Who we are

Tranquiliti was founded to help create a change in the education system. We’re driven by our own personal experiences of poor mental health, and the time we’ve spent working at schools, where we saw an imbalance between wellbeing and academics.

Since 2018, we’ve worked with teachers, students and experts across mental health and education to develop an intuitive and intelligent service that helps students and schools to address this imbalance and start to make a change.
