The App to Tackle Your Mental Health

New self-help app, AskDoc, has launched in response to the growing demand for mental health support. In the aftermath of a worldwide pandemic, mental health support is needed more than ever.

Mental and physical health are equally important components to our overall wellbeing, and it’s important to learn and understand all three aspects of our mental state – psychological, physical and social, all of which once managed can help maintain our optimum wellbeing.

The NHS has understandably been more challenged and stretched than ever before, meaning that patients are faced with longer waiting times for treatments and in some instances aren’t getting the help they need when they need it.

Now, the AskDoc app is designed to help users take control of their mental health and wellbeing through courses tailored for various mental health conditions, including anxiety and depression, through the expert advice of trained psychologists.

CBT has risen in popularity, as an effective treatment method for a range of mental health issues – it aims to help people identify and challenge unhelpful thoughts and learn to practice self-help strategies.

The AskDoc app is suitable for those with a variety of mental health concerns and offers courses which are informed by evidence-based practice and in line with NICE guidelines. 

Providing personalised support, the app courses are designed to help individuals struggling with mental health difficulties without the burden of long waiting lists or additional costs, to help improve the users overall mental wellbeing.

Dr Juliet Anton, Chartered Psychologist and founder of AskDoc said:

“We hope that AskDoc makes CBT therapy more accessible to a wider audience and teaches individuals techniques and exercises to manage their own mental health, where appropriate.”

The AskDoc app is available to download for free through the Apple Store (for iPhone) and Google Play (for Android), with access to free specialist courses from an expert psychologist. Users can also benefit from an optional £5 subscription to the Depression Forum once the course has been completed.
