Anxiety disorders affect one in eight teens.
There are medications and therapies that can help alleviate symptoms, and now there’s even an app that can help.
The MindShift app aims to teach young adults how to combat everyday anxiety, panic, conflict and worry. Teens can input their symptoms and the app will create a plan to help reduce stress.
Created by two non-profit organizations, Anxiety BC and BC Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Mindshift app gives users the ability to customize tools like mindfulness, visualization and positive thinking.
The free app also includes articles, questionnaires and a tracking system to analyze results over time.
