"Headgear" mental fitness app released

Headgear is an app designed to improve mental fitness and includes a toolbox, mood tracker and a 30-day challenge of short daily exercises drawing on a combination of mindfulness, behavioral activation therapy and psycho-education.  

Part of the Well@Work project funded by BeyondBlue and the Movember Foundation, Headgear is intended to address the high stigma and low help-seeking rates for mental health support associated with highly masculanized workplaces such as emergency services and mining.  We developed the app in collaboration with our colleagues at the Black Dog Institute and the Brain and Mind Centre.

Recruitment for a randomised controlled trial of Headgear is complete which means we've been able to release the full app to the public!
