There are well over 150 000 health apps available in Europe—from those designed to improve general wellness to apps that monitor medical conditions, apps for clinicians, and apps that function as medical devices. There have been more than 102 billion downloads of health apps worldwide yet there is little regulation or guidance available for doctors or patients on quality, safety, or efficacy.

NHS England has launched a ground breaking initiative to help treat depression and anxiety and improve access to psychological therapies by unveiling the first ever directory of NHS-endorsed digital mental health services.

The Mental Health Apps Library will feature online tools, resources and apps that have a proven track record of effectiveness in improving mental health outcomes.

It will be accessible through the NHS Choices platform, a website which gathers over 40 million visits per month, 9.7 million of which are to pages on depression; 6 million per month to stress and 9.4 million to anxiety.
