Everyone Can Benefit From These 5 Mental Health Apps

Everyone has those days – you woke up late, got your period, and spilled your coffee down your blouse. Bad days are bound to happen, but when the burnout you feel is ongoing, it can lead to stress, anxiety, and depression – ultimately affecting your physical and mental health.

However, daily maintenance of your mental wellness can make all the difference. From learning how to cope with anxiety to tracking your everyday moods, below are five apps to boost your mental health.

A popular meditation app that users swear by, Headspace offers daily guided meditations, along with a 10-day beginner’s guide to mindfulness and meditation. Once you get the hang of it, the app delves deeper into more specific meditations catered to your every need – relaxation, anger, depression, focus, compassion, weight loss, and sleep.

The 24/7 robot checks in with you every day to see how you’re feeling, whether you’re happy, content, stressed, sick, or sad. Woebot walks you through the thoughts and emotions you’re feeling in the moment and helps you figure out any distortions with exercises like generalizing, black and white thinking, forecasting, and projecting. It even teaches you useful mental health tools, such as mindfulness and how to have a growth mindset.

eMoods Bipolar Mood Tracker
eMoods is great for someone who’s diagnosed with a mood disorder to use in conjunction with counseling services. The app allows you to create a daily record of your moods, sleep patterns, highs, lows, medications, and other symptoms related to mood disorders. Bring your eMoods reports to your doctor and counselor visits to discuss your mood patterns, triggers, and more.

Created by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, 7 Cups is an app that offers online therapy and free counseling sessions 24/7. Whether you’re dealing with addiction, relationship stress, depression, anxiety, chronic illness and pain, or sleeping problems, 7 Cups provides access to volunteer listeners who provide emotional support.

Made specifically for depression, bipolar, and borderline management, UP! tracks your depression, mania, and hypomania.
