BASE has been designed to help young people manage their stress, anxiety and depression. The app allows you to write diary entries which help you keep track of when your stress and anxiety might be at its best, or worst. This will help you understand how to manage your emotions.

The app also provides handy tips on how to calm down and relax. It even produces entry reports which show the emotions you feel most. The app logs this data into a seven day graph so you can see how much your mood changes over a week! BASE is used to help you not down your feelings so you can understand when your stress and anxiety is at its worst instead of relying on memory.


This application has been created by the NHS/CAMHS which means that the information given is only of the highest quality with a strong evidence base. The application allows young people to take control over monitoring their health and wellbeing. The application is free and available on both iOS and android. The application is visually pleasing which makes it easy to use. In the age of the smartphone generation, applications like this are always guaranteed to make young people take responsibility for monitoring and keeping on top of their mental health.
