Abstract

There are tens of thousands of mental health-related apps available today - representing extreme duplication in this digital age. Instead of a plethora of apps, there is a need for a few that meet the needs of many. Focusing on transparency and free sharing of software, we argue that a collaborative approach towards apps can advance care through creating customisable and future proofed digital tools that allow all stakeholders to engage in their design and use.
