Innovative features such as specialized therapies.. what does that even mean? It's an app not a therapist.

Well, what if there are some bits of therapy that could be replicated and served from an app? For example, I'm on a forum for sleep therapies and one of them is light therapy. I don't know the capabilities of a smartphone in terms of light emission but imagine if that was possible. Simple things like positive affirmations can be easily repeated on an app.

I'm sure some techniques would be fine. Most of them use some type of CBT as a tool for teaching those type techniques. But anything more specific than that, you really need a qualified therapist to work with and it wouldn't be helpful with any deep emotional integration.

We don't have good access to mental health services where I am because we don't have universal Healthcare. I'd argue an app is better than nothing.
