Useful Apps & Resources

Apps and resources for mental wellbeing

Managing mental health can take may forms, some access therapy, some listen to podcasts, others use apps… there are lots of mental health apps to choose from in your app store that can assist with a number of different issues and many of these apps are free of charge. They can offer invaluable support and resources, making therapeutic techniques more accessible to everybody.

Please note we would always recommend seeking professional support if you feel your mental health is becoming difficult to manage or you feel you are experiencing a crisis as apps are an aid not a replacement for professional support.
