The effectiveness, safety, and supplemental use of apps in counseling is a growing concern in the mental health field. There is a proliferation of mental health-related mobile apps, but they are rarely tested for effectiveness and safety and the majority of the apps developers are not affiliated with the mental health field. Without a single regulatory system that oversees the apps, there is an increased concern about the privacy and safety of client data.
