Mental Health and Wellbeing Apps


Mental Health and Wellbeing Apps

There’s a sea of apps and online resources out there and sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. In our work, we are constantly coming across products which are well regarded in our professions and have the potential to have a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing of students. So here are a few we like this month. Let us know what you think!

Clear Fear

Clear Fear is a brilliant free app to help manage anxiety. It was developed by a clinician and young people who experience anxiety, and uses a Cognitive Behavioural framework to help you change anxious thoughts and emotions, alter anxious behaviours and calm fear responses.

CyberSafety Solutions

Susan Mclean is an ex-police officer who has years of experience in dealing with cybersafety. She has developed this website to provide information for parents, schools, community organisations on all matters relating to cyber safety to help, support and guide.

The Resilience Project

The Resilience Project is an organisation that works with schools, the public and sports clubs to develop strategies to build resilience. They have an app which is available for purchase (a once off $4.49 which lasts forever) which is a daily well-being journal, helping to identify emotion and record moments of gratitude. It is designed for primary & secondary students, and adults who would like to improve their mental well-being.
