MindApps helps users and therapist choose quality assured apps for mental health. At MindApps.dk you can:
We have developed MindApps.dk and the framework “The App Checker” to ensure quality in apps. Today there is a lack of control with data security and an absence of common standards for quality which is one of the major barriers for using apps in treatment for mental health.
MindApps.dk is a community for users, therapists, developers and researchers who have ideas for developing and evaluating apps or just want to know about the use of apps for mental health.
MindApps is developed by The Centre for Telepsychiatry in the Region of Southern Denmark. The site is developed in collaboration with therapist, users and experts in data security and assessment of mHealth technologies.
Psychiatrists in the Region of Southern Denmark participate in the testing, screening and review of the apps. In each app review you can see which psychiatric unit who have contributed.
Users are involved as far as possible in reviews and share their user perspective under the individual reviews.
The overall responsibility and operation of MindApps.dk lies at Centre for Telepsychiatry, a research and development department in the Psychiatry in the Region of Southern Denmark. Centre for Telepsychiatry is the hub of the region’s work in Telepsychiatry and is responsible for selecting apps for the site.
We appreciate your input.
