On behalf of NHS organisations, ORCHA tests more apps than anyone else, looking at effectiveness, safety, security and usability. Here are three mental health apps which score highly, each designed for a specific patient group:
- For Children - developed in collaboration with a clinical psychologist and other academics, Chill Panda, includes a stress monitor and features games, tasks and activities to help children learn how to deal with stress.
- For teenagers - MeeTwo is a forum for teenagers to get advice from peers, but importantly all content is curated by Psychologists and moderated by Psychology undergraduates.
- For adults - Created by a former patient and his psychologist, Companion reduces the impact of stress and anxiety using CBT techniques.
