    Hi Roos, I’m working with great documentary on mental health and I’m wondering if there might be a place for it here. It’s a fantastic intro to some mental health apps that use real research to help those with mental illnesses. You can see it here: http://www.codetherapyfilm.com

    • in2mentalhealth  On July 4, 2017 at 7:13 am

      Dear Jason. I’ve seen the video, and indeed it’s nice and clear. But this in2mentalhealth website is closed, which means that I’m not posting new info on it anymore. But I will give your documentary some extra attention on Fb and Twitter. Good luck and thanks, Roos
