An introduction to My Possible Self

What are the benefits of using a mental health app?

There is clear scientific evidence that the activities and exercises in the toolkit can be highly effective in improving your wellbeing. The more time you invest in them, the more rewarded and motivated you'll feel.

In short, the more you put in, the more you’ll get out! We’ll be there to support you every step of the way.

To help support our patients whilst undergoing mental health treatment, Priory is offering free access to the premium version of the My Possible Self app.

Getting started

It's really easy to start your journey to becoming your best possible self. Just follow the steps below, and then you can log in to the app. Begin by downloading the app through the following links:

  • Available on the Apple App Store
  • Or get it on the Google Play Store
  • If you’d prefer to use the programme from your  desktop, follow this link
  • Once downloaded, click ‘sign up for free’, followed by ‘sign up’
  • Enter your email address and a password of your choice
  • Enter the organisation code provided by Priory (please speak to your site team, if you need your code sent to you)
  • Accept the data protection and terms and conditions and press 'continue'

After logging in, you can start to explore all of My Possible Self’s features. You'll see the main homepage, which contains some navigation options, mood tracking, the lifestyle questionnaire, blogs and quotes.

At the bottom of the page in the app, or the top of the page in the desktop programme, you’ll notice a set of icons. You can navigate back to the homepage at any time by clicking the house icon in the app, or, if you’re using a desktop, the My Possible Self logo.

Take the lifestyle questionnaire

A good place to start is our questionnaire. This will help you to decide which areas of your life you may want to focus on improving. To start the questionnaire, tap the tile on the homepage that reads ‘take the lifestyle quiz for recommendations’.

The questionnaire takes just a few minutes to complete. Based on your responses, you’ll be given some suggestions of health and lifestyle areas to work on.

Mood tracker

You'll find the mood tracker in the homepage of the app. Once you open the mood tracker, you'll see several moods to choose from. Once you've selected a mood, you'll be prompted to dig a little deeper into your current state. The app will then present various questions to help enhance your self-awareness. These include the following:

  • How are you feeling?
  • What are you doing?
  • Who are you with?
  • Where are you?
  • Would you like to elaborate on what is happening?

Along with your typed answers, you can attach images to your response. Once you've completed this, you'll then see your mood entry on the homepage of the app, within the mood history.

Guided series

Our guided series are designed to help you learn new skills and techniques for taking control of your thoughts and feelings, enhancing your mental health and improving your physical wellbeing.

With your input, this will be a rewarding educational experience completely tailored around you and your needs. This element of personalisation means you get optimal results, which you’ll start to notice almost immediately.

You'll find all eight guided series in the ‘series’ section of the app.  These include the following:

  • Sleeping well
  • Overcoming my anxiety
  • Eating healthily and staying hydrated
  • Keeping active
  • Tackling my depression
  • Managing my stress
  • Drinking safely
  • Gambling safely

If you're unsure on which guided series to choose, each one has an introduction video to help you explore its key content and benefits.

Every session has various questionnaires, videos, audio and activities to help you stay engaged with each particular topic. You’ll be able to deepen your understanding from an inspiring combination of interactive and informational content.

You may wish to work through the guided series using the mood tracker; this is optional, so the choice is yours. If you do want to use these two features side by side, you'll gain even more by having a clear picture of your progress as you go along.


We have created this toolkit so that you can easily find our logs, mood tracker, exercises, audio and sleep monitoring. This will then help you to identify behaviours and monitor your progress. You can filter the toolkit down to the guided series you're working through, by clicking the different sections at the top of the page. The entire content of the toolkit is grounded in tried-and-tested scientific research. The more time you spend using them, the better your results will be.

How safe is my data?

Any data you enter into the app is backed up to the My Possible Self servers.

We cannot guarantee a direct reply to your support case, but we will prioritise issues and provide updates when we can.
