The NHS App is a free app that will give you easy access to NHS services, letting you quickly access services such as 111 for advice on symptoms. You can do this on behalf of an individual or for yourself. You will be presented with an intuitive IA who will have a conversation with you regarding your symptoms to best diagnose you and advise relevant support. Remember doing these online are not always perfect results, for ongoing or serve issues contact your usual health professional.



what3words is another free mobile app that has divided the world into 3-metre squares and assigned each square a unique three-word combination. It is the easiest way to find your exact location! Whether you’re a lost carer finding a client or just don’t know where you are, what3words will help. Once what3words has located you, it will present you with your three-word code for your location. If this is not precise enough for you there are also 5 by 5 coordinates which will help narrow down your exact spot! These three-word locators are not just for kicks, once these have been handed over to any public service support they will know exactly where you are and how to find you. So, your three-word code may just save a life.



SAM is an app dedicated to mental health support. It will assist you in identifying the root causes of your anxiety, tracking the development of your anxious thoughts and behaviors through time, and managing your anxiety via self-help activities and reflective reflection. It can be extremely helpful for self-reflection and self-help.



Whether you're brand-new to meditating or a seasoned pro, Calm is for you. Anyone who requires a mental break, a calming sound, or a good night's sleep should use it. You can choose three areas to concentrate on, such as lowering anxiety, getting better rest, learning to meditate, or cultivating appreciation. Then it offers you guided meditations tailored to your requirements based on your past meditation practice.
