Today, in partnership with Bell Let’s Talk, we announced the launch of our new secure mobile app that will allow clients to take our programs on the go. Read the full release HERE.
Dr. Patricia Lingley-Pottie, president & CEO stated,
Demand for SFI services has increased significantly due to the COVID-19 crisis with more people needing access to mental health services. With Bell Let’s Talk innovation funding support, we will be able to increase access to our program skills to more Canadians, regardless of where they reside. Having SFI skills at their fingertips will equip clients with the support they need to improve mental wellness, when and where they need it!
Mary Deacon, Chair of the Bell Let’s Talk was quoted as saying,
Bell Let’s Talk is pleased to build on our existing partnership with Strongest Families Institute to offer a secure mobile app to help even more Canadians access SFI’s programs and services, especially as we see increased demand for mental health services driven by the COVID-19 crisis. This new mobile app will help more people in communities around the country get the support they need more quickly wherever they live.
Our latest innovation will help bridge the digital divide. Our user-friendly app will increase Strongest Families’s ability to make our program skills easily accessible. This will be especially helpful for people living in rural or remote regions, for those unable to access internet coverage and even our Canadian military members who are deployed overseas. The Strongest Families mobile app leverages gamification techniques to encourage clients to practice the skills they’ve learned and develop strong habits of daily self-care as part of a personal mental fitness routine.
Thanks to this new partnership with Bell Let’s Talk, clients can take their skills with them wherever they go. They can simply download all the resources while connected to a secure Wi-Fi connection and then access them offline. This will be especially helpful when clients are unable to access internet services regularly.
