HOW IT WORKS

We believe Cove has a role to play in improving emotional and mental health by encouraging self-expression. We believe Cove is especially good if you experience anxiety or depression.

Cove can be used any time, but may be most useful when you find it difficult to express yourself through other means, such as talking or writing. You can use Cove whenever you feel like it. You can make music by yourself, or share what you make with others.

EVALUATED BY CLINICAL EXPERTS

We think it is important that any app that advertises about mental health takes it seriously.

That is why Cove has been tested, evaluated, and trialed in health services in the UK, and has been created in collaboration with clinicians and other specialists.

Cove primarily uses music instead of words to express a feeling or mood, and so it may be helpful in conjunction with talking therapies and counselling. Cove is not a substitute for professional therapy, and not suitable for those experiencing severe distress or suicidal thoughts. If you find yourself really struggling, in the app there are helpful links to organisations who can help you. Don't be afraid to reach out to someone.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT COVE

Cove helps me relax take a few minutes for myself on creating sounds that I can later hear again. Creating your own therapeutic music and save it in your own library!

(Mer Wk)

I use this app to help me when I am ruminating on something, especially negative things. I make a little Cove song about it and it makes my mind a little light, a little easier to move. I love the minimal, intuitive interface, and it provides an interesting array of sounds to play with.

(Anknoif)

Really enjoyed the ease with which I can capture an emotion I am feeling at the moment.

(CMPSMKR)

WHAT THE PRESS HAVE SAID

...one of the best mental health apps.

(The Guardian)

Cove is a journaling app that upends what youd expect from a journaling app.

(WIRED)

For people who struggle with anxiety or just find it hard to even determine their own moods, melodies can prove a useful tool of expression.

(The Next Web)

MADE WITH CARE

We all struggle with our mental health sometimes, some more than others. We made Cove because weve experienced problems in the past. If youve found Cove useful, please tell others or leave a review.
