People using the EMPOWER App will receive ‘EMPOWER messages’ after each time they enter information. These messages are intended to help people have a greater sense of control over their mental health and wellbeing and to support self-management. We aim to share messages which are positive and encouraging. We also want messages which help people reflect and to be kind to themselves. Messages may include links to further information, practical advice or helpful quotes related to each of the topics covered.
The messages people receive may be informed by changes identified through the App. For example, if information entered into the App suggests a change in mood then the message may be specific to mood.
In phase 1 of the EMPOWER study we created a survey to gather suggestions on message content to be shared in the App as well as views on the types of messages which might find useful. You can view our survey video here.
You can see some examples of messages in the message gallery at the foot of each page.
