Local CCGs Promote Mental Wellbeing with Technology
A new mobile app comparison service is being unveiled by NHS Bradford district and Craven CCGs which will support people with their mental health and wellbeing.
Mental health issues will affect around 155,000 people in the Bradford district and Craven during their lifetime; with approximately 6,200 people needing specialist mental health support.
The CCGs have identified the opportunity for mobile health apps to support their digitally savvy population.
The latest initiative supports mental wellbeing; building it into care delivery, supporting early intervention and helping people to self-care and manage their conditions. This creates a new way to support self-care but doesn’t replace the more traditional ways of accessing mental health services.
To help people find safe apps that will be effective for their health condition, the CCGs have worked with ORCHA to build the free health app comparison site - bradfordandcraven.orcha.co.uk.
