My Possible Self, the new mental health app, will join the NHS Apps Library after successfully demonstrating that it meets NHS technical, clinical and safety standards.
My Possible Self is based on content developed by the world-renowned Black Dog Institute that is proven to reduce stress, anxiety and depression in just eight weeks. The app is designed to help users aged 18 and above learn how to improve thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It includes learning modules to help users overcome day-to-day problems, manage fear and improve happiness and wellbeing.
The app’s tracking system lets users monitor up to three symptoms to help better understand their feelings and recognise behavioural patterns, which can be recorded in a secure online diary.
My Possible Self is available via App Store, Google Play, web portal and, in the week that the NHS celebrates its 70th anniversary, the NHS Apps Library.
Joanne Wilkinson, founder and chief executive of My Possible Self, said: “We have a great team, great content and great technology and we are delighted to have successfully demonstrated that we meet NHS technical, clinical and safety standards. We passionately believe My Possible Self has the power to help users manage fear, anxiety and stress.”
