New apps from ReachOut lighten the load

 YFX logo

The youth mental health online resource ReachOut has just released two new apps designed to help young people better cope with stress and anxiety in their lives.

Both apps can be used by young people to help reduce the physical symptoms of stress and anxiety by slowing down the heart rate in order to help induce a feeling of calmness. The iPhone version also measures heart rates for users.

WorryTime works by guiding users to set aside a specific time of the day to use as ‘worry time’ and encouraging them to not fret about their problems all day.

WorryTime and ReachOut Breathe can be accessed for free from the ReachOut website.
