My Possible Self, the mental health app, now offers the NHS a digital triage tool, MPS Connect, to enable NHS professionals to manage large populations of patients with potential mental health and well-being problems.
MPS Connect offers NHS professionals the opportunity to connect patients to app and website content that is clinically proven to reduce stress, anxiety and low mood. And at the same time, open up a flow of information on the mental health and well-being of patients that can be used to direct medical interventions and manage each patient back to recovery.
MPS Connect offers full interoperability with all major NHS IT systems. It can help identify mental health and well-being problems in patient populations and allows NHS professionals to bring different mental health interventions to the point of need by the use of ground-breaking digital technology.
We’ve partnered with our sister company inhealthcare, the UK’s leading digital health and remote patient monitoring tool.
Our partnership allows NHS professionals to remotely monitor patients with self-reporting measures such as PHQ-9 and GAD-7 so they can better triage patients with common mild-to-moderate mental health symptoms.
My Possible Self, the mental health app, contains clinically proven content to reduce stress, anxiety and low mood. Patients can:
Patients can select from 10 learning modules including Managing Fear and Anxiety, Managing Stress and Overload and Building Happiness and Wellbeing.
They will learn to identify the signs and symptoms to look out for and develop new ways to deal with thoughts, feelings and behaviours that can cause problems.
Patients can track how they feel every day with our mood tracking and insights tool. They can highlight activities, places and people that influence their mood, so they can focus on the things that make them feel great and do less of the things that don’t.
We are a family business founded in 2009 by Joanne Wilkinson as a not-for-profit counselling service based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. My Possible Self, the mental health app, launched in late 2017 as an evolution of that original local business with 38,000 downloads and 4,000 monthly active users to date.
We continue to be a small family business with 20 staff based in Harrogate. If you’re passing by, drop in for a chat and a cup of Yorkshire tea. Our size means that we are agile and responsive to the needs of patients and clinicians alike.
We exist to empower everyone with the tools and techniques they need to better manage the day to day stresses of normal life, to form and maintain healthy relationships and deal with positive and negative emotions.
The app is designed to support adults with common mental health problems including people living with stress, anxiety and low mood. We would not suggest the app is used for more severe mental health problems and advise that anyone experiencing more severe mental health problems seeks immediate medical help.
Personal identifiable information can only be accessed through existing GP systems and not by My Possible Self or Inhealthcare.
My Possible Self also completed a comprehensive Digital Assessment Questionnaire in order to be listed as one of six mental health apps on the NHS Apps Library.
