SAM provides a range of self-help techniques organised into several main well-being themes, together with tools for recording and monitoring changes in your well-being. The social cloud feature allows users to give and receive support from others. We ask you to be non-judgemental and sensitive in your interactions with other users.
Depending on your circumstances and personal style, you may wish to explore the app and its self-help options before deciding how to make use of it; or you may wish to start with a more structured approach. For a structured approach, use the “Mood Tracker“ feature to record and monitor your experience and the “My Triggers” feature to record situations which affect you. Remember that persistence counts – our research shows that users who monitor over a longer period are more likely to learn to manage their moods
If your institution provides a usage code, you can unlock additional content and social spaces tailored to your work, study or treatment community. For more information on this service, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All self-help content is informed by established psychological principles. We have aimed to include self-help content that is supported by research, recommended by practitioners and/or rated highly by users. We have tried to offer the self-help options in a variety of formats to suit individual needs and preferences. SAM does not offer clinical diagnoses or therapy programmes although it does provide relevant links for these and to contacts for more immediate help.
- We have fixed the Mood Tracker chart to show you your rating.
- We have introduced filtering your own posts on the social cloud.
- We have removed call to action for self-help content.

Ratings and Reviews
Good, tiny improvements possible
This can be a great app, and don’t get me wrong I really like it, it has really helped my anxiety, and is still helping. I definitely recommend it!
But there are a few small things, I personally am not a fan of the character limit of posts and comments, and the graph is a little to simplifies ( 5-6 options). I would personally prefer a graph system more similar to the previous app.
Again this is a great app, but just a few things that I thought I would put!
Fairly happy user of SAM!
So I know this app is designed for people to help others, but I wish there was a filter to separate different kinds of posts, or a moderation system. I saw a post made by a user, and it has caused my anxiety to spike.
