PsyberGuide

Digital therapies and device-assisted support can positively impact those who face mental health challenges and also improve healthcare access for those who face geographical constraints. With the continuing expansion of technology, smartphone apps offer new opportunities for clinicians and consumers to manage mental health using technology. In recognizing that only a small number of these apps have been tested or reviewed and that there’s a bewildering abundance of apps to choose from, we launched PsyberGuide.

One Mind Program PsyberGuide

About PsyberGuide

PsyberGuide is a One Mind program dedicated to supporting consumers who seek to make responsible and informed decisions about computer and device-assisted therapies for mental illnesses. The program’s resources are also intended for professionals and researchers seeking to enhance their knowledge in this area.

By utilizing a 3-pronged rating system that includes a ‘Credibility Score’ that represents the strength of the scientific research support for the app itself and the therapeutic interventions the app provides, a ‘Mobile App Rating Scale’ (MARS) to assess the design, accessibility of information, and overall experience that the app provides, and a ‘Transparency Score’ that represents the clarity of an app’s privacy policy in detailing the data storage and collection procedures of a mobile health product and its associated servers, PsyberGuide is able to provide unbiased recommendations that are free of any preference or endorsements.

The program is committed to ensuring that this information is free and available to all.

PsyberGuide Goals

To provide accurate and reliable information about software designed to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety disorders.

To continue to expand the number of people who use the PsyberGuide website and expand its reach to communities who because of geographical constraints may be lacking adequate mental health support.

Why One Mind's Support Matters

One Mind believes that the unbiased information that PsyberGuide provides to anyone who has an Internet connection is both critical and scalable as technology advances and the population becomes even more comfortable in supporting their brain health conditions online. To support the ongoing operations of PsyberGuide, One Mind underwrites it annual budget each year, thereby ensuring PsyberGuide’s service to society.
