Apps

There are lots of free apps available which can help support your wellbeing. But you should bear in mind the following when downloading any such apps:

  • An app can offer general support, but it can't diagnose a condition or offer specific personalised support. Therefore, if you are worried about your wellbeing or mental health, get in touch with a support service or talk to a professional
  • Consider the source and trustworthiness of any app you download. It may be out of date by the time you download it and so may not be accurate. 
  • Some apps require a subscription. You can utilise free trials to explore the app and try it but make sure you cancel any subscriptions before you are charged unless you're happy to pay for them.

Here's some popular apps:
