Online Mental Health Apps Library


Lots of people have found talking therapies helpful for mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and stress.

Evidence confirms that talking therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can be as effective as medication for some mental health problems.

While CBT and other face-to-face talking therapies are widely available privately, you may have to wait to get them on the NHS.
Online help for mental health

NICE has approved the use of computerised cognitive behavioural therapy (CCBT) for the treatment of depression, generalised anxiety disorder and panic disorder. CCBT is the name used for delivering CBT via computers, tablets and phone, usually online. Research suggests it can be just as effective as having face-to-face therapy with a therapist if you are supported by a remote therapist.

As well as CCBT there are a range of other online mental health services available to support people with their mental health.

You may be able to use CCBT and other online services for free on the NHS. Ask your GP or mental health professional, or contact the services themselves directly to find out.
