There are thousands of apps for mental health, but it can be challenging to know which ones are reputable, safe and effective. Only a tiny percentage are associated with credible healthcare organizations. On one hand, there are good apps that may be helpful. On the other hand, there are some apps which may be a waste of time and money, and worse, perhaps even harmful.
