Emotional Health and Wellbeing Applications and Websites
Pamela Day, District Ed LinQ Co-ordinator at Gold Coast Child and Youth Mental Health has compiled a list of the the many available apps, websites and online programmes that address the emotional health and well-being of adults, teenagers and children.
Pamela warns that they are for information purposes only and not intended as a substitute for professional health advice or therapy. She notes that the choice of app or programme depends upon a variety of factors, including evidence base, cost, platforms and personal preferences.
The Mobile Application Rating Scale (MARS) is one of many publications provided by the Young and Well Cooperative Research Centre. It is a simple, objective and reliable tool for classifying and assessing the quality of mobile health apps.
