There are nearly 20,000 mental health apps that will do everything from tracking a person’s suicidal thoughts to soothing someone experiencing a panic attack. Even with so many apps, there is little guidance about which ones can really help someone. According to STAT News, researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have developed a guide that includes what clinical evidence has to say about the apps. Using the tool, patients can sort the apps by whether they’ll have to pay for it, the kind of services it offers, the intensity of its privacy policy, and the clinical evidence that supports it.
