What is Brain in Hand?

Brain in Hand is a revolutionary approach to help individuals with conditions such as autism, anxiety, mild or moderate mental illness, or recovering from brain injury.  It helps them to live independently at home and be more effective in education or the workplace.  It transforms their lives and the productivity of organisations that support, educate or employ them.

Brain in Hand provides people with personalised support from an app on their phone.  Features include instant access to pre-planned coping strategies, a diary to help structure time and “recipes” for difficult to remember tasks, a monitor to track anxiety levels and a system to request support if things don’t go to plan.  From a secure website support staff can monitor usage, track success of interventions and identify new issues.
