Summary

An app for medical professionals to purchase, and then to pass on to patients who are living with a mental health problem. Enables people with a mental health problem to overcome shortcomings with memory by digitally recording moods and activities for their doctor. A user can keep a daily diary, access web tools to help understand the condition, set personal goals, and receive prompts to achieve those targets. Appointment reminders inform about dates with healthcare professionals. The app aims to improve outcomes for people with a long-term mental-health condition, and to enable medical practitioners to support their patients more effectively.

Reviews

Reviewer: Adult Care blog, Community Care, UK
Review: “Following a trial in London, it is being rolled out across 10 areas in the UK. I’ve been sent a bunch of positive quotes about the app. But don’t bother with those, as it’s probably better for people to see for themselves what it’s like.”
