Divisions 56 and 46 worked collaboratively to create a Mental Health Mobile Phone Application Review database, which currently includes information on more than 40 apps for iOS and Android systems.  The focus of this database is to provide APA members with evaluated tools to augment service delivery. The database is also designed to enhance the potential effectiveness of self-help strategies, thus serving the community and highlighting the role of APA in championing ethical and empirically based interventions, which are core values of the organization. The project serves the strategic goal of expanding psychology's role in advancing health through education and creation of what is likely to be a highly accessed database for researchers and professionals.
