Samaritans have launched their new Self-Help app to help people keep track of how they are feeling, and provide recommendations for things they can do to help themselves cope, feel better and stay safe in a crisis.
The Samaritans Self-Help app can used online via your browser, or can be installed on a computer or smartphone. It is not monitored by anyone, including Samaritans staff or volunteers, and they cannot see what people write in it. Any feedback left via the sidebar will also remain anonymous.
The app aims to help people learn safe, memorable techniques for coping with things that are troubling them, through a range of interactive features. It can also help them make a plan to stay safe in a crisis, and keep track of things they can do away from the app to help themselves feel better.
With an account on the app, people can:
- record their mood every day
- look for patterns in how they’re feeling
- make their personal safety plan
- store images of things that give them hope
