On-demand CPD webinar: Augment mental health services with digital health

In this webinar we discuss ways to build digital health tools into your mental health patient pathway.

Last year Papyrus introduced an app library to offer instant, anonymous, help to those thinking about suicide. Papyrus staff are extending their services; using the website’s in-built functionality to recommend apps straight to service users’ phones by text or email where possible. Papyrus will share details of the programme, which apps they frequently share and where gaps in the mental health app ecosystem still exist.

Many thousands more contemplate suicide; many harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling. PAPYRUS exists to give young people hope and to prevent young suicide. We draw from the experience of many who have been touched personally by young suicide across the UK and speak on their behalf in our campaigns and in our endeavours to save young lives.
