With 1 in 4 people in Northern Ireland suffering from mental health issues, the awareness of the services available is vital.
As part of a Health Hack NI event last year, sponsored by Belfast City Council in a drive for connecting Belfast, TotalMobile™ developed a location based application that highlights where Mental Health and wellbeing services can be accessed in the surrounding area.
MindMateNI is suitable for all public sector organisations and their service users; Youth Workers, PSNI, Social Workers, GPs, Ambulance Service, Charities and other groups who work with people with mental health issues.
The app will provide a resource to anyone in need, quickly showing them where they can find help and cutting out the step of visiting a GP. Belfast-based TotalMobile™ teamed up with Youth Workers who identified a need for the app at the Health Hack event, where the project was announced overall winner.
MindMateNI is still available to download and for free.
MindMateNI is available on Blackberry, iPhone and Android. Help us raise awareness and share this story!
The app can be accessed by searching “MindMateNI” in BlackBerry App World, Windows Phone Store, Apple App Store or Google Play or using the following links;
