What if making a change
was easy?

Our Mission

Curb builds mobile technology to make behaviour change simple. 


We set out asking a simple question: how can we use our team’s expertise in psychiatry, technology and product design to support people who suffer at the sharp end of health inequalities? 


Our mission is to replace reactive, episodic and time limited care with preventative health interventions 
to improve global health equity. We want to free all people to live life on their own terms by delivering them all the information and mental health support they need in day-to-day life. 


Our first product supports patients who want to drink less or stop drinking entirely, and was released in January 2023.
