eCBT is a set of Apple™ apps that provides therapeutic skills and education based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). There are three versions of eCBT, each for a specific category of mental illness: Mood (mood disorders), Calm (anxiety disorders), and Trauma (PTSD). Each can be used either as a stand-alone system or while working with a therapist or doctor. Designed to help users overcome their illness, eCBT may be particularly useful for individuals who do not have accessible or affordable mental health services in their community. However, this app does not appear to have been revised for some time, and users should be cautious when using apps without security updates.
