Why people are turning to Mental Health Apps?
Mental Health is an issue that is taking over the lives of many Australians. Due to the convenience many people are turning to smartphone apps for support and there is evidence that they actually hold amazing tools to engage with people who are having issues with Depression, anxiety or are even just stressed out.
However, there is no current accreditation system for apps in the Mental Health field, therefore there is no way of knowing whether certain apps are actually helpful or not.
To discuss this and to ask how to find a good app we were joined by David Bakker, Doctor of Clinical Psychology Candidate at Monash University.
If you or anyone you know is suffering from any of the issues we have spoken about please don’t hesitate to contact Lifeline on 13 11 14.
