A newly developed iPad app to assist mental health patients in remote Indigenous communities has received a positive response.
The AIMhi stay strong iPad app is a project of the Menzies School of Health Research and the Queensland University of Technology, and is aimed at patients who are unable to access face-to-face mental health assistance. The app also provides practitioners with an alternate option to referring a patient to a psychologist.
Associate Professor Tricia Nagel of Menzies School of Health Research says that the app received a lot of positive feedback, in terms of being acceptable, accessible and something that allows a conversation to develop between a therapist and an Aboriginal person.
