Apps to Help with Mental Health

Obviously, for tweens and teens in crisis, there's no substitute for face-to-face intervention and professional help. However, since phones are tools most teens use, they can offer timely resources and help for those who need it. Aside from general health apps, these tools focus specifically on coping with anxiety, depression, and specific difficult circumstances via meditation, connection, and other techniques. While some are focused on an individual's experience, others offer chat and the option to find a therapist. Especially when used in conjunction with other approaches, these apps might offer teens a little peace of mind.
