CBT with Skip – the mental health companion
CBT App for helping people with mild anxiety or depression to recover. The pandemic has worsened an existing mental health crisis, meaning more people than ever before now need support.
Unfortunately, under the current stepped care model, individuals with mild issues need to deteriorate significantly to meet the criteria for therapy. Including the cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) that has proved so effective at restoring mental health. CBT with Skip is a CBT App that’s set to change that.
Designed to fill the gap between Every Mind Matters and more intensive IAPT services, CBT with Skip provides immediate access to therapeutic conversations and tools. It features a mental health companion – Skip the dog – that chats to individuals about how they’re feeling. Guiding them towards appropriate resources based on their individual feedback and built-in GAD7 & PHQ9 assessments.
CBT App Features
CBT with Skip bridges the gap between ‘watchful waiting’ and helpful action. Empowering individuals to start helping themselves to recover as soon as they reach out for support.
Skip chats to individuals about how they’re feeling. Acknowledging their emotions and directing them to complete activities based on NHS approved CBT principles, based on their unique needs.
CBT with Skip is based on NHS approved online CBT principles that has been proven to have an impact when it comes to reducing mild anxiety and mild depression.
Instantly available to download, there are no waiting times. Individuals can start using the CBT app the moment they leave their GP, or complete their mental health assessment.
Unlike human CBT therapists, who are typically only available for an hour a week, CBT with Skip is a mental health companion that’s always there to provide support, whenever needed.
Built in weekly mental health assessments (PHQ-9 and GAD-7) allow individuals to monitor progress and healthcare authorities to measure the mental health of their population.
CBT app supporting integrated care
CBT with Skip can also be used as part of integrated care initiative, for people to access and download directly, without having to see their GP first.
It can also be distributed to people with a health condition that can lead to anxiety or depression. Such as diabetes, cardiovasular disease, arthritis, long covid or cancer.
