Abstract

This report aims to provide a review of current usage of digital solutions for the management of mental health conditions. This includes reference to relevant Scottish Government policies and a
market analysis of currently available products and services that are stated to aid the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions. This review has identified there are a number of digital tools, platforms or applications currently in use in health and care services across England and Scotland to support the better management of mental health. However, these were not easy to identify and there will certainly be other activity taking place in the UK that has not surfaced in this review. For those without a prior understanding or signposting to what is already available this lack of visibility would present difficulties. In particular for services and digital solutions offered outside of the NHS, citizens would find it difficult to understand what is or could be available to them and what is safe to use in supporting the management of their mental health and wellbeing.
