A new web app called Doc Ready that helps young people utilise their GP appointments launched last week at Space for Change in Brighton. Doc Ready helps young people when it comes to dealing with mental health. It provides them with an agenda, details of their appointment and relevant information about their visit.

Several of the young people who helped design the app were in attendance at the launch, along with representatives from Mind, NHS, YMCA, Right Here, YouthNet and Brighton & Hove Council.

Matt Skinner, project leader for FutureGov, was thrilled to work “on this much-needed project with young people and mental health organisations to develop, design and build digital tools that reflect young people’s experiences and can really make a difference.”

Rob Trounce of Sussex Central YMCA said that: “36% of young people did not feel comfortable speaking to their doctor about mental health issues. We hope that this tool will help offer reassurance and encourage more young people across the country to seek the help they need.”
