It’s no secret that we are living in a health crisis. Demand for mental health and wellness professionals is at an all-time high and the supply of these resources is low. So as it becomes increasingly difficult for individuals, students, and families to gain access to wellness professionals, where should they turn? Studies have found that there are up to 20,000 wellness-related apps that exist today. These apps are truly filling a much-needed gap and with so many apps that exist, there has to be something for all of us!
The following 5 apps are some of our favorites. They target stress and wellness by supporting our mental health and getting our bodies moving. Most are free with the exception of Bloom, however, it is a very small price to pay for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
