Phone Apps

Phone Apps for Managing and Reducing Stress

Managing stress is a skill that everyone needs to develop. Whether it’s a daily battle or an occasional flare, the effects of stress take a toll on our productivity and, more important, our health. Fortunately, new tools can bring stress management within easy reach.

Here are some apps found for managing and reducing stress.

Psychological First Aid: (free) 

Lets responders review PFA guidelines and assess their readiness to deliver PFA in the field. The app provides additional support when the responder is in the field by providing tips on different survivor groups (infant/toddler, preschool, school-age, adolescent, adult) and keeping track of survivor concerns and referral needs. Resource links are included to facilitate referrals. PFA Mobile™ supplements other resources that trained individuals utilize before, during, and after a disaster response. This is the iOS version of the app.

PTSD Coach: (free)

PTSD Coach was designed for those who have, or may have, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This app provides you with education about PTSD, information about professional care, a self-assessment for PTSD, opportunities to find support, and tools that can help you manage the stresses of daily life with PTSD. Tools range from relaxation skills and positive self-talk to anger management and other common self-help strategies. You can customize tools based on your preferences and can integrate your own contacts, photos, and music. This app can be used by people who are in treatment as well as those who are not.

PTSD Coach was created by VA’s National Center for PTSD and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology.

Breath: (free)

Smartphone app with instructions and exercises in diaphragmatic breathing, a documented stress-management skill. Includes detailed information on the effects of stress on the body.

DBT Coach: (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy): (free)

This is a comprehensive DBT app that exists today with easy to follow visual tools.
Learn and practice DBT skills using video lessons and fun animations which helps you to remember skills longer. Features over 100 videos and 200+ animations. You can also take notes on these lessons for future use.

CALM: (free)

It should come as no surprise that Calm is designed to help you be calm. With stunning backgrounds that you can stare at for ages, and a range of meditations, Calm provides a space for you to get away from it all, without having to go anywhere. You must create and account, has some good tools for relaxation and meditation, mental fitness, sleep, and music. Many of the tools are locked and can only be unlocked with in-app purchases.

Colorfy: (free)

The mindfulness coloring book has become digital! Colorfy provides flowing and relaxing shapes and patterns for you to color, allowing you time out from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  Free, but with limited number of pictures. In-app purchases available but they do not seem necessary for use. Can be a helpful distraction, similar to coloring in a book, but does not offer specific counseling skills

Headspace: (free)

“A gym membership for the mind,” Headspace provides a series of guided meditation sessions and mindfulness training. A free trial is available with additional sessions available by subscription. Seems like it has useful skills, but only offers a 5 day free trial with many of the tools locked until purchased 

Mindshift: (free)

Mental health issues can affect people of all ages, so it’s fantastic that an app like Mindshift has been developed. Designed primarily for teens and young adults, Mind shift focuses on issues that cause stress and anxiety within that age group. You must create an account, but very helpful with teaching about certain symptoms, with a feeling scale and tracking tools.
