Australia’s Red Cross has launched an app dedicated to helping those struggling with mental health issues by creating a team of people around them ready to help.
Called My Team, it aims to create a support network around sufferers of depression while helping them on their journey.
“That is the essence of My Team,” says one of the creators of the app, Marcus De Giglio. “Having that support around you to help you through the ups and downs of mental health. For me that means the tough periods in between doctors and specialists, during rocky medication changes, or something as simple yet agonising as getting out of bed becomes.”
He adds, “My Team helps you maintain relationships, self esteem and acceptance, and personal growth, those fundamental human needs vital to a fuller life, at those times when our illness threatens to lead us astray.”
