The global mental health apps market was valued at USD 6.63 billion in 2024 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 16.5% during the forecast period and be worth USD 14.23 billion by 2029.

Current Scenario of the Global Mental Health Apps Market

Mental health problems are characterized by low mood, absence of positive emotions, and various associated cognitive, emotional, and behavioral symptoms. Apps work because they're easy to use, make symptom management more accessible, and increase participation in treatment plans. Mental health apps help improve the monitoring and management of mental health issues. These apps allow users to improve their self-awareness by managing their moods, maintaining good habits, breaking bad ones, and cultivating positive thinking.


The growing usage of mental health apps due to the benefits associated is a key factor propelling the mental health apps market growth worldwide.

Growing lifestyle changes and rising developments in emerging nations are further anticipated to boost the market's growth rate during the forecast period. In addition, the YOY rise in the incidence of mental disorders and YOY growth in the aging population are further favoring the growth of the mental health apps market.

An influx of apps offering virtual therapy for mental health is further accelerating the market's growth rate.

Experts and business leaders have highlighted the value of mental health and well-being for workers in various companies over the past century. Schools and institutes are collaborating with software developers to help students manage stress during their studies. Modern lifestyles and hectic lives have influenced the growing need for the virtual treatment market. Mobile phones have also improved the productivity of many professions and turned them into valuable tools.

The adoption of mental health apps is further fueled by shifting healthcare trends away from traditional treatment models towards patient-centered and individualized care. Mental health management apps, such as anxiety, depression, meditation, and wellness, help maintain overall health, encourage a healthier lifestyle and reduce stress, thereby driving the market. Additionally, growing funding opportunities for developing various mental health applications signify growth opportunities for the market.


The primary factor restraining the market is connectivity issues.

Even at present, many areas have connectivity issues. Running mental health apps through low-speed connectivity on smartphones may hamper the growth of the mental health apps market. Moreover, the lack of smartphones in some underdeveloped regions is another factor since every individual does not use smartphones. Also, the increase in smartphone prices with new developments and technologies, along with various functions integrated into the system, obstructs the market's growth. The rising cost of mental health and addiction programs is also expected to restrain the market growth. Another reason could be the excellent availability of several mental health apps online. This makes it difficult for users to select the right and wrong applications. This can obstruct the growth of the mental health apps market.

Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Mental Health Apps Market

The outbreak began in early March 2020 and continued for over a year. The closures and quarantines resulted from the coronavirus outbreak in China. Many businesses have suffered losses due to shipping and travel restrictions. The unemployment rate rose as more deaths were reported. Due to the unexpected increase in the number of patients and the severe shortage of hospital resources, such as oxygen cylinders, beds and staff, the financial situation has deteriorated. The covid-19 outbreak has had a significant favorable impact on the growth of the mental health apps market, increasing consumer demand for better mental health and the benefits of mental health support provided by solutions and technologies such as meditation with a proper response, greater digitization with the use of smartphones with more excellent connectivity, and more. This has led to an increase in downloading mental health apps with more solutions for mental issues such as anxiety, depression, and stress. In addition, the rise in mental health solutions with easy access through smartphones using connectivity is driving the market growth with growing problems due to the increase in population and improved mental health applications during the forecast period.
