A mental well-being app that has developed a base of more than sixty-thousand users – My Possible Self (MPS) – has been made free to support the emotional well-being of the country during these extraordinary times. The app, funded by NHS in London to tackle mental wellbeing, uses material that has been scientifically shown to alleviate mild to moderate depression, stress and anxiety.
In addition, the app provides users with a set of strategies and tools to help identify behavioural pattern changes, grasp mood, enhance mental health, and become more self-aware.
“My Possible Self has been made free to support the emotional well-being of the country during these extraordinary times.“
Founder of MPS, Joanne Wilkinson, stated: “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!”
