App supporting health professionals mental health
May 27, 2020
The Black Dog Institute has developed The Essential Network (TEN) App to support health care professionals by developing an integrated specialist mental health support system designed specifically for them. TEN can support Health Professionals to manage life and work through COVID-19.
TEN’ is a mobile app that connects and provides fast, easy, anytime access to evidence-based tools, resources, programs and specialists.
Developed by health professionals for health professionals, it’s a one stop resource and help centre, providing self-assessment, self-management and treatment for stress, anxiety and symptoms of depression. At the core is an online clinic screening tool designed to recommend relevant resources and online tools based on report outcomes.
The app will also facilitate a streamlined online referral process for telehealth consultations with specialist clinicians.
Delivered by world leaders in IT, mental health research and public health, the app is fit for purpose and robust in both functionality and evidence base.
Working collaboratively with the partners below, our aim is to deliver the app as soon as possible and potentially in phases, starting with the online clinic for immediate assessment and access to resources and digital self- help/management tools before implementing full scale telehealth consultations.
