The Backup Buddy Support app is for the staff of the South East Coast Ambulance Service, designed to help with mental health issues.

The App covers a range of problems faced by staff in the Ambulance service, such as anxiety, stress, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), depression, eating disorders, self-harm and more.  It gives practical advice and support on how officers can maintain good mental health, spot warning signs for themselves and others, plus advice on how to get help for themselves and colleagues.

There are specific pathways mapped for help and support including 24hr support.

The App also includes staff's own stories which users can relate to, leading to feeling less isolated.

General mental health tips are provided, as well as a directory of Useful Contacts and we have a facility to share your story - to help reduce the stigma in others.

The Backup Buddy App reduces mental health stigma!
