Washington Post Recognized PsyberGuide as a Standout Service to Review Mental Health Apps and Tools
One Mind’s PsyberGuide program has been receiving a lot of national media recently that highlights the program’s position as an informative, unbiased resource that can aid those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress or a number of other brain health conditions. Included, is the recent article the Washington Post released two days ago that showcases the differentiated value the PsyberGuide program provides.
There are thousands of brain health apps on the internet and the PsyberGuide program works to review and rate many of them to help the user decipher which app or tool is best for their personal needs. Accessible via the psyberguide.org website, the program analyzes each app/tool and gives a score for its credibility, user experience and transparency into how the app stores your data, while also sharing if the app is supported by quality research and whether it’s designed to improve a specific brain health condition.
In a time where there is a shortage of mental health professionals and affordable care, and where many people lack access to professional care or they are reluctant to seek professional support, the PsyberGuide program provides a highly valuable service to those in need.
