Empowering Mental Wellbeing

Improving access to wellbeing support through Research and Development of  Digital Mental Health Solutions.

Mind Garden Services and the SAM app

Self-help App for the Mind

Our fully updated and extended SAM App (Self-help App for the Mind) includes the ability for organisations to deliver tailored and personalised support to their selected client groups: students, employees or other service users. With explicit opt-in user consent and secure data access, professional service providers can also get an overview of their client’s or service user’s progress, and valuable insights into their engagement, via our new SAM portal product.

Collaborative Work

We will work with you to help develop and deliver bespoke content in text, image, animation or video format (or existing content may be repurposed). Our analytics data will provide aggregate feedback on the level of engagement with each type of support or technique.

We take a collaborative and flexible approach to partnership – let us know your needs and we will contact you for an initial conversation about the use of SAM in your organisation

Meet Our Team

We work in partnership with the Graduate School, Wellbeing Service, the PGR student body, DocSoc, Student Union and selected PhD supervisors across the university of the West of England. These groups have been involved in co-design and evaluation of SAM throughout the development lifecycle.
