Globally, over 600 million people are affected by mental health-related issues, according to the recent statistics. Similar to the global scenario, these issues are the single source of disease burden in the UK as well. On the bright side, the boom in the mobile application or `app' market and the paradigm shift in the global disease burden has promoted a growing interest for mental health-related apps. This paper critically explores the mobile application for mental health support to understand what apps are available in the market and their merits and capabilities to meet the need of users' demand. This paper also provides a recommendation for future directions.
