Innovative wellbeing app helps reduce anxiety, stress and depression
On Tuesday 26 May 2015, innovative digital health and wellbeing company, Musemantik, released Soulight, a mobile app delivering personalised interventions to help people track and reflect on their mood, encourage awareness and mindfulness, boost wellbeing and reduce anxiety, stress, and depression. With support from social investor Nominet Trust, the Scottish Government and New Media Scotland’s Alt-w Fund, Musemantik unveiled a free beta version of Soulight to Google Play with the full product set for release in late 2015.
Soulight is a wonderful tool for everyone, especially those suffering from depression, the most common healthcare problem in the UK, affecting one in five adults at some point in their lives. The NHS estimates the economic cost of anxiety, stress and depression to be over £105 billion each year, including treatment costs, lost productivity at work and reduced quality of life, and these figures represent just those that seek help; many suffer in silence.
Nominet Trust funded project, Open Utility, join forces with Good Energy to trial the UK’s first online marketplace for buying and selling renewable electricity. more >
