#DL100 – After reaching the top 3, teenage mental health charity @stem4org’s app library has won the honour of #TechforGood Initiative at the @DigiLeaders 100 Awards 

These awards celebrate the individuals and organisations from the public, private and non-profit sectors who are demonstrating a pioneering and sustainable approach to digital transformation in the UK. stem4’s winning apps, Calm Harm, Clear Fear, and Combined Minds, have supported over 1.5 million people globally with managing self-harm, controlling anxiety, and supporting young people with mental ill-health respectively.

Winners of all 10 categories were announced on the 15th of October 2020 in a digital ceremony, hosted by Alan Dedicoat the “Voice of the Balls” on the National Lottery and Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One. Nominated in the category of ‘Tech for Good Initiative’ alongside the MeeTwo app and Octopus Energy, stem4 are delighted to come away as winners after several rounds including interviews and public voting.

Dr Nihara Krause, CEO of stem4 and clinical developer of all stem4’s apps said,

“This is a very prestigious award to be nominated for, let alone making it to the final 3 and going on to win. We are hugely grateful to HMA Digital, all those who voted for the stem4 apps during the public stages, and to Digital Leaders 100 for their support. However, most of all, we are delighted to have been able to successfully support young people in managing their mental health digitally, through effective evidenced-based apps, in a year where access to support and services has been even more difficult.”
