Coronavirus: Apps to help self-management

It's easy to find ourselves feeling isolated when social-distancing

Using your smartphone is a great way to stay engaged with your health and wellbeing, as well as relieving pressure on the NHS. 

Here is a list of ORCHA-approved* apps, designed to support self-care and manage anxiety:

  • Wysa* is an emotionally intelligent chatbot which employs research-backed, widely used techniques such as CBT, DBT, Yoga and meditation, to support users with stress, anxiety, sleep, loss and a whole range of other mental health and wellness needs.
  • Fabulous* takes a holistic approach to motivate users to be more productive and have higher energy. The app is more than just a habit tracker, or a way to create new rituals – it’s a personal coach and happiness trainer.
  • Your.MD is a health tracker and symptom checker powered by Artificial Intelligence, which has been developed by doctors and data scientists. It provides instant personalised health information and services, whenever and wherever it’s needed, for free.
  • eQuoo* is an evidence-based Emotional Fitness Game, combining the excitement and joy of gaming and the expertise of mental health professionals to provide a new form of mobile prevention and therapy for young adults 18-28-years old. 

*ORCHA is the world’s leading health app advisor organisation and helps the NHS to assess and build apps into practice.
