Psychologists at The University of Reading have launched a free iPhone app to help people with depression get help without needing to go to their GP.
Developed as part of a PhD research project, the app, Mood Mate, was launched on World Mental Health Day last week.
It helps people monitor their own mood and will detect signs that they are becoming depressed or anxious and will point them towards treatment services.
