We are building an app for people with lived experience and their supporters

The swell app is a fun and easy way for people with lived experience to access swell resources, jump in and out of activities at will, and stay in control of what happens to their personal information — who can see it and what they can see.

The person chooses a domain and then a challenge within that domain. Within each challenge they can:

  • Read what works in resolving the challenge.
  • Read a peer recovery story related to the challenge.
  • Do an activity to explore and reach decisions to overcome or manage the challenge.
  • Set up reminders.
  • Review and change all their decisions.
  • Share their activity data with a trusted person or people.
  • Rate the challenge activity and resources.

They person can also:

  • Send and receive messages from trusted people.
  • Do a quick self-assessment.
  • Select favourites and share resources.
  • Store their information.

The service the person uses can:

  • Include their branding.
  • Upload their goal setting and assessment forms.
  • Include information and links to advertise their services, seek feedback and provide local information.
  • Gather anonymous aggregated usage data.
