Information Information


23 self-help guides written by clinical psychologists (with input from patients) on common mental-health issues. Subjects covered include abuse, alcohol, anger, anxiety, depression, domestic violence, eating disorders, panic, postnatal depression, shyness, and sleeping difficulties. The guides contain hints, tips, and self-help techniques, and they also carry pen-and-paper exercises which users can complete in their own time. Each guide opens with a video that can be downloaded free of charge (choice of male or female narrators). The guides can be read offline, or printed. Some of the guides are available in British Sign Language (BSL). The app aims to make people more aware of their own mental-health issues, and to provide advice and support.

Reviewer: Mental Health North East (MHNE)
Review: "Self-help guides from Mental Health North East's (MHNE) award-winning patient information centre. There are over 20 guides or directories, covering a range of mental-health issues (such as anxiety, depression and stress), and can be downloaded to your device. The directories also signpost users to useful (local) services. Each directory provides a brief description of local services, along with contact details. Three of the directories are aimed at carers, people experiencing mental health issues, and ethnic minorities."
