NHS trust develops psychosis app for young people

Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is trialling an app called ‘My Journey’ for young people with psychosis, to enable them to monitor their moods, get advice on symptoms, set up reminders for appointments and when to take medication, as well as access a list of who to contact in case of an emergency.

Psychosis include mental health problems such as hallucinations and delusions

Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is trialling an app called ‘My  Journey’ for young people with psychosis, to enable them to monitor their moods, get advice on symptoms, set up reminders for appointments and when to take medication, as well as access a list of who to contact in case of an emergency.

Psychosis include mental health problems such as hallucinations and delusions.

According to Sara Amani, team manager at the early intervention unit, “We want the app to be integrated with clinician’s systems so that it can be used as a tool in the treatment process.”

The idea for the app was voted 7 out of 500 ideas submitted to the Department of Health.
