Digital tools

These days there’s a digital tool for almost everything, which means the main challenge is working out which tool is the best for whatever you’re trying to do. We set up this section of the site for this reason, and listed as many useful sites as we can, from making connections to therapeutic tools, and from getting advice to having fun. If you’d like to know more about volunteering, online learning or careers check out our enterprise section. If you’d like to get out and about in Sheffield we also have a section which lists local mental health friendly activities.

Disclaimer: the information and feedback in this section is gathered from our community and doesn't necessarily reflect the views of Sheffield Flourish as an organisation.
