More about Molehill Mountain

Molehill Mountain is based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) approaches adapted for autistic people. The app was developed from a paper toolkit focused on psychoeducation, created and evaluated by Professor Emily Simonoff. Molehill Mountain is co-owned by Autistica and Kings College London. The app has been funded by Autistica with support from the Maudsley Charity, The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists Charity and The Pixel Fund.

Who is the app for and why?

Research studies show that almost 40-50% of autistic people suffer with anxiety disorders. Understanding the causes of anxiety and the reasons for symptoms is key to managing anxiety better. Autistic people often receive inappropriate anxiety support and sometimes theyre unable to access any support at all.

Molehill Mountain aims to help users build their knowledge, confidence and skills to understand and self-manage the causes and symptoms of their anxiety. It offers a practical way for autistic people to track their worries and the situations that trigger their anxiety that can be used whenever and wherever its needed.

How is Molehill Mountain different to other mental health apps?

Many clinical mental health apps fail because of low engagement levels. Users say apps are often unhelpful, dont address their problems or feel insecure or untrustworthy. Autistica and Kings College London have worked with autistic people and developers to make the app easy to use, engaging, relevant and secure.
