KEEPAPPY, a new Irish app, was created to start a conversation around mental health. Aimée-Louise Carton, the app’s founder, said she created this mental wellness app as a result of her own experience of PTSD following a sexual assault. The app’s features include mood tracking, sleep tracking and goal setting. An in-built game brings a fun into the delicate area of mental health. Check it out at keepappy.com.
