NHS Mental Health Apps Library goes live

Published: 24/03/2015

NHS England have launched a ground breaking initiative to help treat depression and anxiety and improve access to psychological therapies by unveiling the first ever directory of NHS-endorsed digital mental health services.

The Mental Health Apps Library features online tools, resources and apps that have a proven track record of effectiveness in improving mental health outcomes.

The library is accessible through the NHS Choices platform, a website which gathers over 40 million visits per month, 9.7 million of which are to pages on depression; 6 million per month to stress and 9.4 million to anxiety.


Geraldine Strathdee, NHS England’s Clinical Director for Mental Health, said: “Mental health care can be enhanced by technology and its ability to connect us with the right treatment in a more personalised and accessible way.  Increasing access to digital services which support those suffering with mental health difficulties will help people get the right care, at the right time.”
