Modern and accessible, ‘HeadStrength’ is a purpose built app for the Defence community, which delivers mental health and wellbeing resources directly to the user based on their current level of wellbeing.
The app gives the user the ability to anonymously self-check and instantly link to a range of tools and resources that are relevant and specific to their current level of wellbeing.
HeadStrength is user centred, evidence informed and action oriented. Through it we provide meaningful tools and relevant resources that empower the user to seek the help they need, when they need it.
HeadStrength is available to all members of the Defence community who are eligible to access ForceNet. It will be available to download through ForceNet from 20 October 2020.
