stem4 is a charity with a passion for improving teenage mental health by stemming commonly occurring mental health issues at an early stage.

The charity launched its award-winning ‘Calm Harm’ app, developed by Dr Nihara Krause, founder of stem4 and Consultant Clinical Psychologist, to support its work and has seen a positive rate of adoption to date based on the number of downloads.

Keen to increase the profile of the app, stem4 is taking part in an NHS England funded ‘Digital Development Lab’ run by mHabitat to accelerate the adoption of digital technologies in mental health.

As part of this process, a number of improvements and enhancements were identified and stem4 was looking for an agency specialising in digital health solutions to re-design the user interface (UI), personalise the user experience (UX), deliver an analytical model by which to evidence effectiveness and re-build the app with scalability and information governance in mind.
