Available for free on the iTunes App Store, thinkFull is designed to help users to improve their mental health by providing a suite of stress tracking and management tools. Users check-in with the app on a daily basis, scoring how they feel on each given day. The app then provides personalized healthy suggestions on how to cope with any stress. Moving forward, CMHA will continue iterating on the app.
The app is specifically designed to help young adults, though any one of can benefit from using it. According to the CMHA, 15- to 24-year-olds have the highest rate of mood and anxiety disorders in Canada, with 11 percent experiencing depression at some point in their lives.
“We are certain that thinkFull will be of great benefit to our Healthy Minds Healthy Campuses and other community members to help build greater resiliency and tackle the stressful situations and challenges they face during their studies and beyond,” said Bev Gutray CEO of CMHA’s B.C. Division.
Mind Your Health, a mental health non-profit, helped develop the app.
