My Team

A mental health support team in your pocket

Be the first to know

The best support comes from those closest to you.

My Team is a new app co-designed by our team at Red Cross with carers, clinicians, counsellors, and most importantly, people who have lived experience with mental health concerns. It helps you build a team of positive people who can give you the support you need, when you need it. This doesn’t mean you necessarily need a huge team offering intensive support. They’ll simply be your most trusted family, friends or mentors, perhaps your doctor or allied health professionals, people who’ve got your back when times get tough.

When you are unwell you are bombarded by all this stuff – way too much – a vice-captain would be so helpful

Co-design Participant

My Team is a concept we developed working with people who have lived with mental health concerns and the people who support and work with them.

We found that if you have trouble with your mental health, having the right people around you – just a handful of people – can make all the difference. We want to support people to build that team and of course – you need an app for that! Our app is just about to launch. You can sign up to be one of the first to test it out.
