OP Life app
For current users of Open Arms apps The Right Mix, PTSD Coach, High Res, and Operation Life, please be aware that updates to your device’s operating system may affect app functionality. If you are not currently using these apps, we do not recommend attempting to download the apps to your device.
At some stage over the coming months, Open Arms apps will no longer be available for download from the Apple or Google Play stores. However, tools from the apps have been migrated to the Self-help section of the Open Arms website.
Where apps are compatible with mobile operating systems, app data will remain on an existing user’s device.
If you are interested in using digital resources to support your mental health journey, we recommend speaking to a mental health professional about the most appropriate resource for your needs.
