My Possible Self in the News
Since we launched in October, our mental health app has been gaining increasing attention in the press. Aimed at helping people manage the symptoms of stress, anxiety and mild to moderate depression, ours is the only UK self-help app to use clinically proven content. The programme was developed by the world-renowned Black Dog Institute, using established therapeutic techniques.
Here’s a roundup of some of our recent press coverage.
Metro newspaper featured us in their App Happy section in December, describing us as follows: ‘This virtual diary helps users deal with the symptoms of stress, anxiety and mild to moderate depression. You capture and monitor symptoms, then receive advice licensed from the Black Dog Institute on managing fear, anxiety and stress’. The ‘virtual diary’ – known as ‘Moments’ – is a great way to track your progress as you work through our learning modules.

Business Quarterly also highlighted the potential benefit to employers, as well as to individuals. They included a comment from David Smith, Chief Executive of Mind Humber and East Yorkshire, who said: “It was an absolute delight to meet the team behind My Possible Self and see first-hand their passion and understanding about what might help people live happy and rewarding lives.
“Among the abundance of low quality and at times questionable apps, My Possible Self stands out as a product that not only offers stand-alone support but a useful complement to conventional face-to-face therapy.”
