Human Connection

I’m reviewing the service itself, rather than the app in particular. I cannot argue that this may work for some and I, myself did find some modules, tools and tips somewhat helpful. My main personal observations were:

- I’m fairly sure the responses from the supporter were auto-generated (possibly some chat bot usage reviewed by a human or at least mostly scripted), based on what modules have been done and rarely (if at all) had interactive questions or anything digging deeper into your responses.

- The whole programme comes across as another to do item, as it’s made clear there is a ‘strict’ attendance policy, and that feels counterintuitive for users suffering with anxiety caused by overworking, for example.

I didn’t use this programme alone, I found other sources in audiobooks and free internet content that was just as, if not more helpful in some areas, but everyone’s mileage will vary. I cannot fault it more than that, I was skeptical going in but overall I think it has helped me to at least have more tools available in the mindful toolbox.

Awful

In a time where anxiety and depression are spiralling, people more than ever need direct human support and contact. It would take an incredible piece of software to emulate this connection effectively and Silvercloud falls so short it actually makes things worse. The UI is horrendous which makes trying to track your progress through the poorly implemented framework clunky and frustrating. The LAST thing people with anxiety and depression need is to feel they need to fight for support and to be left with the feeling they are somehow failing at one more thing after finally asking for help. I reached out in a moment of desperation while trying to cope with full time work, while raising 2 young children, alone and entirely unsupported, after we lost their mother to cancer. I communicated that I was having suicidal thoughts and what do I get? I get a faceless, confusing, second-rate and tedious online course to work through, most of which I can and have found already in better and clearer format with Google. We truly live in a time of broken connections and priorities. Shame on those who think this helps.

No help

I reached out for help because I’ve been having a horrendous time with my anxiety and I decided it was time I finally got help. I spoke to my doctor and they referred me to SilverCloud. I was actually excited because I thought I would be getting the help I need at last. But no. The modules and tools are ok but it’s things I can find on google and there’s no real work for me to do. I’ve only had 2 “reviews” I wouldn’t even call them reviews because it looks more like a computer generated response. The app claims I have a supporter but I couldn’t even contact my “supporter” in between reviews or anything. I literally read the modules and filled out the tools and I would get useless responses back once a month. If you are in need of proper help I would not use This app. they have completely wasted 2 months of my time.
