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.

Data currently includes that of Hospitals, Mental Health Hospitals, Social Care, Public Health, and Consultants. GP data has yet to be added.
