Four mental health apps to help with your wellbeing


COVID-19 has severely impacted the amount of social interaction that has occurred between individuals, which has also included severe limitations on the physical interactions between individuals. This lack of socializing and decreased interactions with the outside environment has had a severe impact on the mental wellbeing of individuals.

According to WHO: “The continued isolation from other individuals and pre-existing support structures also acts as an aggressor for the possibility of a mental disorder”. To help you keep calm and sane, you can visit these mental health apps:

1. Smiling Mind
A brilliant, free app that doesn’t have that annoying problem of in-app purchases. Smiling Mind offers meditation sessions for dealing with anxiety or just better good night’s rest.

2. Calm
Keep calm and meditate with the Calm app that will help you practice mindfulness and stillness if your world is feeling a little (read: extremely) shaky.

3. Moodpath
Whether you are a feeling newly overwhelmed or bridging the gap between therapy sessions, Moodpath helps you journal your emotions and gives helpful plans of action to implement into your life.

4. Colorfy
Indulge in some colour therapy with this app that allows you to create colour-by-numbers imagery and help you decompress for just a few minutes – or hours. Who says colouring in is just for children?
