Struggling with anxiety? Tired of missing out? There are things you can do to try and reduce anxiety and prevent fear from controlling your life. MindShift is an app designed to help teens and young adults cope with anxiety. It can help you change how you think about anxiety. Rather than trying to avoid anxiety, you can make an important shift and face it.
MindShift will help you learn how to relax, develop more helpful ways of thinking, and identify active steps that will help you take charge of your anxiety. This app includes strategies to deal with everyday anxiety, as well as specific tools to tackle: making sleeping count, riding out intense emotions, exam stress, perfectionism, social anxiety, performance anxiety, worry, panic, and conflict.
This app uses evidence based resources to help teens and young people overcome anxiety. In the age of the smartphone, apps like this are amazing at reaching out to young people and giving them a sense of control over their own mental health. The application is available on both iOS and Android, and is free on both. The layout and look of the application is not the most visually pleasing – it’s slightly old fashioned maybe? – but the app is highly regarded.
