What users think

Hi there, Just wanted to say thanks a lot for the advice, had wanted to wait to see how he got on with the app before giving you an update - Over the last day or two I’ve noticed a huge difference in how he is coping and with his mood, he just told me there, without my asking, how good the app is that I downloaded on his phone, that he has been using it every day and it’s helped him massively he said there is a relaxation part and cbt which he is finding amazing - Coming from a person who has tried lots of different meditations online and stress management techniques, it is a relief to hear him say he has found something that’s finally been a huge help - So thanks a lot to yourself and team and designers of this app for my partner and all the other men it’s helped in times of need. Sarah.
Hi there, I’ve been meaning to contact you for a while but didn’t really know where to start - I suffer from stress and anxiety and was ashamed by my situation and embarrassed to talk to friends about how I was feeling - My partner found your charity and downloaded the Brothers-Thrive app onto my phone - Admittedly I was reluctant and sceptical about this kind of help and thought I would get better on my own - I started using your app to log how I was feeling, and to help manage my thoughts - I’ve even tried meditating! - So really what I want to say is THANK YOU. Kevin.

Why we have a digital strategy

Our strategy is showing that we are 100% reaching out to the male demographic in Scotland, and also to more remote parts such as the highlands because there is not always a support infrastructure or where the small communities can be a barrier to men seeking support.

Since the app launch in May 2018

We have over 1500 users of the app accessing it every month in Scotland from Stornaway to Dalkeith and all city's in-between with an age range of 16 to 65+

The number of sessions of the app being used as a total per week: 2,011


CBT sessions used per week: 1117


Deep Muscle Relaxation sessions used per week: 516


Wise Words Game sessions used per week: 290

The three highest modules most used by our demographic on a weekly basis
