Smart Apps For Special Needs: Good Free App of the Day: Mindshift - help teens and adults cope with anxiety

Smart Apps For Special Needs: Good Free App of the Day: Mindshift - help teens and adults cope with anxiety | Going Digital | Scoop.it

Have you noticed a theme to my recent posts? I've been writing a lot about stress and anxiety, but I know it's a relatable topic for so many of us. I'm called on to offer support and guidance to others dealing with anxiety in both my personal and professional life. I want to share current and evidence -based resources. I also want to be able to practice what I preach! Mindshift is a free app by Creative B'stro that can help. It's a joint collaboration between two organizations in British Columbia: Anxiety BC and BC Mental Health and Addiction Services. Both websites feature a wealth of information and additional resources for children, teens, adults and parents. The mobile app is designed to help teens and adults cope with a variety of types of anxiety. The amount of content available in this free app is impressive. Take a deep breath and download Mindshift today.
