This project looks at the mental health of our emergency services, focussing on the police service in particular.

Using primary & secondary research to find out what would be the best tools to raise awareness of issues or encourage internal changes.

The result is Oppo, a self-help app to aid mental wellbeing.

Oppo monitors working hours, mood changes, etc. & with machine learning gets to know you & looks out for you.

Talk to Oppo without the stigma of not coping. Analysing inputs, Oppo suggests how & when it’s time to unwind, and flags any changes pointing to the need for professional help.
