My Possible Self now free to support mental health

My Possible Self the clinically proven mental health app is now available for free to support many during the Coronavirus crisis.

The app provides proven content to reduce symptoms of low mood, anxiety and stress in 8 weeks and is now available for free to support the nation during this challenging time.

The modules use established forms of therapy including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), problem solving therapy, positive psychology and interpersonal therapy and has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety in just eight weeks.

It teaches a user psychological strategies and coping skills to tackle stress and anxiety, and boost your mood.

The app has more than 60,000 registered users and last summer was commissioned by the NHS to combat poor mental health in London.

Joanne Wilkinson, founder, said “With all of us facing uncertainty about our health, loved ones and work, and increasing social isolation, it is no wonder we are seeing a rise in stress and anxiety.”

“At My Possible Self we want to help and are making our app free for anyone who signs up. Based on face-to-face therapy, we will teach you psychological strategies and coping skills to tackle stress and anxiety and boost your mood.”

“You can also use our mood tracker to see how activities, places and people influence your mood – so you can focus more on the things that help and less on the things that don’t.”

“We will continue to offer our app for free until we have come through this crisis. We will do whatever we can to help.”

 My Possible Self partnered with the NHS-backed Good Thinking website in summer 2019 to provide Londoners with new ways to combat poor mental health and boost wellbeing throughout their day.
