Doc Ready Wins Mental Health Blogging Award

Doc Ready has won the “Helpful” category in the This Week in Mentalists Awards 2013,  which recognises the best in mental health blogging.

Doc Ready was awarded for blogging the development of our app to help young people visit their GP to talk about a mental health problem.

The awards’  judges all had considerable experience of mental health, either as providers or users of services, and all were extensive users of social media in mental health in their own right.

Here are just some of the judges comments:

- “Massively practical, very necessary thing to have”
- “A dynamic and very professional site”
- “The resource I wish I had many years ago.”

Congratulations are also due to the runners-up Leeds Wellbeing Web, an “inspiring and innovative community blog” and Stranobambolina, praised as “helpful to anxiety and emetophobia sufferers to have a ‘me too’ moment”. Both sites are well worth checking out if you get a moment.

There’s more information on the award and other winners over on the Mentally Wealthy blog.

The Doc Ready team delighted with the news of this award and it’s already motivating us to keep up the blog and continue being open about the development of the app.
