Choices for Voices12 July 2016 More News
DabApps have been a pleasure to work with. They were efficient and very responsive to all of our needs, working flexibly to achieve the goals we'd set for the Choices app. The finished app delivers exactly what we'd aimed for and we're looking forward to our clients enjoying the benefits that it offers.Dr Mark Hayward, Director of Research, Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
Earlier this year we were commissioned by the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust to design and develop a clinical support tool for people distressed by hearing voices.
The mobile app, called 'Choices', is now available to patients attending the Trust's Voices Clinic. It allows them to develop their own personalised coping strategies, build their assertiveness capabilities and practice mindfulness. By using the app, all of the knowledge and insights that patients gain from their clinical sessions can be brought into their daily lives. An in-app 'Mood Tracker' allows patients to monitor how they are doing each day and the ability to create personalised content means that they can record useful information between clinical sessions.
