The app is an evolving digital platform. We work alongside academic partners to ensure MindYourself is evaluated at each stage of its development and changes made to improve it for our users.
We follow these steps so MindYourself app is effective in preventing and addressing the mental health conditions of health and social care workers:
- Carry out research & evaluate our platform
- Findings from these are used to improve the usability and content
- We are continually learning and are open to all feedback we receive
RESPONSIVE: we aim to respond to any queries, requests in a timely manner and listen to what you really want from us.
CREATIVE: many of the organisations we have worked with have described that we ‘think outside the box’ in order to engage clients and deliver complex psychological information in a fun and accessible way.
DIVERSE: as an organisation we continue our journey to learn, reflect and take action to be a more inclusive and safer place for all.
PASSIONATE: we love what we do and are highly motivated to support people and organisations to be the best they can be.
INTEGRITY: for us matching our words and actions is an integral part of our core values. We are open to honest feedback and welcome this from all we work alongside.
We have a combined experience of over 50 years supporting individuals, teams and organisations impacted by a range of mental health conditions. Additionally, we have led research projects, national programmes and developed mental health services.
