The GMC has published a guidance around students and mental health conditions. It might be worth having a read through.

Calm (for Apple) – for people who want to try out mindfulness and guided meditation.
Stigma (for Apple) – an app that combines journalling, mood tracking, and finding anonymous “pen pals” to share stuff with.
