Depressed? Wanna get rid of mental disturbance? And exhausted enough to find a solution to culminate this…. Let us bury this with an app?! Awestruck?! Here we have something awaiting your attention…
Former international model Silja Litvin decided to do something about it because; she herself went through a trauma of her friend’s suicide and got an idea of this innovation. She says “I learned about depression when I was a young teenager: a friend died through suicide, leaving me shocked and determined to fight depression.”
Silja Litvin had pursued PHD thesis in Psychology she found it easy to find an app herself… So she launched PsycApps which does both of the above, and brings therapy to the ultimate comfort-zone: an iOS smart phone app now launched.
This application helps identify whether you or your close associates are weary of facing depression and helps you to get professional help, and how to help yourself come out of this. “We also lower the 6-week on average search for a therapist down to 20-30 minutes,” says Litvin.
Once the user/client has gone through the screening he/she will get one of five results showing the probability that they are suffering from depression (no symptoms to high-probability). Directly after the results they are shown a number of tips to self-stabilize and are directed to both the therapeutic features and the ‘find my therapist’ option. So far this app has raised £250,000 and wishes to raise more
