Fantastic, helpful list, for all sorts of issues. Thank you for all your legwork!
Thank you Candida, Not as fantastic as your infographics and research based posts! Your posts with visual information are dynamite. I always enjoy reading all of your posts!!
I went through the course from brainline military website on mTBI today regarding some of the issues and treatment of vets hosted by Brainline, they have great materials. I may have gotten this from your website. It certainly was worth the time! Wonderful resources, I am sure you are aware of them. http://www.brainlinemilitary.org/concussion_course/introduction.php?utm_source=BLMilNewsletter&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=Jul12Newsletter
I’m working with mental health population. Are ther any APPS that suit?
In answer to you yes there is there are many, but by no means is this an area of expertise of mine. In the updated OT’s with Apps App List (link at the top of the blog is now working) has a listing of some apps. Certainly now there is an apps for almost anything (how good it is – you will need to judge or take suggestions from others inthe profession by doing an app review search on a app, or search for mood tracker apps, or apps for PTSD, depression etc and you will find many!
I would also direct you to Candida Abrahamson’s website, a specialist in mental health. Along with a lot of information she has some recommendations of apps within her post. Here is her website address and link to some apps for mood tracking :
Here is another website I just stumbled upon that has many apps listed and lists of lists:
If the above do not help, do a search on a single topic, depression app, PTSD app, relaxation, meditation etc. and that will give you a start to finding and trialing apps. There are apps for iOS as well as Android out there!
Good luck, happy apping!
