Mental Health Apps – Not just for the young!


Ross O’Brien, associate director of innovation and technology for Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust, and the programme lead for Digital Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services, says this increase is directly as a result of the pandemic.

“People want support now. A digital app gives direct and rapid help and is instantly available,” he says. “Apps have a range of uses, both as a tool while someone is on a waiting list to see someone, or if someone’s condition isn’t serious enough for them to be referred for talking therapy.”
