SlowMo is the first digital therapy platform for paranoia that provides self-management tools for people to take control of their lives. It empowers users to visualise their thoughts and the fast thinking habits associated with paranoia, and slow down for a moment to manage upsetting thoughts. Paranoid thoughts about other people wanting to harm us are common and can have a devastating impact, which current treatments struggle to address.
The SlowMo mobile app and digital therapy sessions were developed through a unique collaboration of leading clinician researchers at Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London and healthcare designers from Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, Royal College of Art. We are testing SlowMo in clinical studies, and it has been awarded Wellcome Trust funding to investigate wearable technology integration.
