“Beyond Blue developed the Beyond Now app to help you make your own safety plan to support you through times of sadness or grief. You can make it on your phone and carry it with you to access anywhere and anytime.
The app guides you through, step-by-step, with suggestions at each stage if you get stuck. You can work through this process by yourself, but it’s better if a family member, an Elder, health professional or support person works with you to make your plan. You can update it anytime and easily share it with others if you want.
Beyond Now is free to download from the Apple Store or Google Play and if you don’t have a smartphone, it’s also online.
App which provides a range of ways to help young people manage anxiety.
“Clear Fear is an app developed for the teenage mental health charity Stem4, by Dr Nihara Krause, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, and uses the evidence-based treatment CBT to focus on learning to reduce the physical responses to threat by learning to breathe, relax and be mindful as well as changing thoughts and behaviours and releasing emotions.
You can personalise the app if you so wish and you will be able to track your progress and notice change.
Please note the app is an aid in treatment but does not replace it…
…The fear of threat, or anxiety, is like a strong gust of wind. It drags you in and makes you want to fight it or run away.
Instead, face your fear with the free Clear Fear app and learn to reduce the physical responses to threat as well as changing thoughts and behaviours and releasing emotions.
Anxiety is a natural response to fear, threat and apprehension. However, when anxiety is extreme or goes on for a long time, or the response to a threat is disproportionately large and affects a person negatively, it may become an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety disorders are the most common form of emotional disorder and respond very well to a form of treatment called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT.”Stem4, the UK youth mental health charity which developed the app with young people | http://bit.ly/2GkVisE
