Thanks to the Licensed Trade Charity (LTC) the Woebot app will be free for three months
Woebot is a ‘personal emotional guide’ that will check in every day to see how you are doing. It was developed and is provided by CareFirst, the organisation that also provides the charity’s 24/7 helpline.
It has been adapted to give specific support during the current crisis and will work with users daily to reduce stress, combat isolation, and help support with the symptoms of depression and anxiety. The app will track your mood, set goals, practice mindfulness and gain insights into your patterns.
‘At a time when our sector balances huge emotional and economic pressures it continues to pull together, collaborate and support each other I’m so pleased to be able to offer this tool, free of charge, to further support their mental wellbeing at this incredibly difficult time,’ said The LTC’s chief executive officer, Jim Brewster.
The charity has experienced a 300% increase in requests for support (March 2020 compared to March 2019).
To download Woebot visit the App Store or wherever you usually get your apps from or follow the link on the Licensed Trade Charity website. You will need to use code cfgen to access the app free of charge for three months.
