Croydon CCG Apps Advisory Group

Please find below three Mental Health Apps which are available from the NHS Apps Library. The Croydon CCG Apps Advisory Group, with support from the Mental Health Commissioning Team has reviewed the Apps below and suggest you recommend them to your patients. However, these Apps are only suitable for people with a low level of need and therefore not suitable for those needing therapy.

In addition there is a symptom checker App which is also available from the NHS Apps Library which you are advised to recommend to your patients.

Significantly for the winter months this link will connect you to a NHS App for COPD which is not as yet in the NHS Apps library.
