HMA has worked closely with stem4 since 2017, supporting the development of its digital portfolio including:
- Calm Harm, a multi-award-winning app to help teenagers manage the urge to self-harm which is featured on the NHS Apps Library and has been downloaded over 950,000 times: https://calmharm.co.uk/
- Clear Fear, an app to help teenagers manage their anxiety – also funded by the Comic Relief Tech for Good fund: https://www.clearfear.co.uk/
This project will focus on the development of a digital tool using an evidence-based, Behavioural Activation approach to help teenagers manage symptoms of depression. Working closely with consultant clinical psychologist and stem4 CEO Dr Nihara Krause, we will co-design the app with young people, clinicians and other stakeholders with a view to launching on the App Stores in Q1 2020.
