The Best World Mental Health Day 2018 Apps

World Mental Health Day Apps

World Mental Health Day 2018, an international event dedicated to raising awareness about mental health issues took place yesterday, Wednesday 10th of October.

This year’s theme, Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World, noted the pressures teenagers and young adults face today, and how mental distress and illness can be prevented through awareness and understanding.

In recognition of yesterday’s important topic, we’re taking a look at some of the best free mental health apps for iOS and Android devices.

The first blog on today’s list is Calm (iOS / Android), Apple’s “App of the Year” for 2017 and a relaxation app that focuses on reducing anxiety for a happier and healthier life.

Meditations, breathing programs and relaxing sounds and music are used to help the listener unwind whenever they need a moment, and the app is great for new and experienced meditators.

Headspace (iOS/Android) is another popular meditation app that comes with hundreds of meditation and mindfulness exercises to choose from for kids and adults alike.

Learn how to become less distracted and find balance in your life with Headspace’s peaceful exercises, and start focusing on the things that matter most in your life.

The science-based games and activities of Happify are great for reducing stress and achieving a positive attitude, so much so that 86% of Happify’s (iOS/Android) regular users reported feeling better about life in just 2 months.

Fast and fun daily exercises featuring evidence-based techniques help users build self-confidence, dispel negative thoughts and improve their emotional well-being.

The final app on today’s list is Woebot (iOS/Android), an AI powered mental health app based on the principles of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Chat with Woebot about your day to track your emotions and learn how to complete science-based techniques for a range of problems while improving mood management and mental health.

Woebot’s quite a unique app in the sense that it communicates with you about how you’re feeling and provides expert advice based on your interactions.

Mental health is an important issue for many people in the world today, but with the right tools and support we can all live happy and healthy lives.
