Peer to peer mental health support app launched 

The UK’s first free peer to peer support app has been launched in a bid to help people with mental health issues find friendship and support, whatever their state of mind.

The ‘Unmasked’ App is designed to enable users to create bonds with people they wouldn’t ordinarily meet, to bridge a gap between appointments with mental health specialists.

Unmasked is a free app, built around research and consultation with a number of mental health charities and agencies in the UK. Users can choose to appear masked (using an emoji to convey their state of mind) or unmasked as themselves. The system helps people form friendships with other users with mental health issues – users can search by age, location and illness to chat with peers to give and receive support in times of need.
