Perhaps one of the only good things to come out of the 2020 global pandemic was a spotlight on mental health. People began reaching out for support when they were feeling isolated or anxious.
But mental health should continue to be a priority this year and beyond. And with recent technology development, you can get support quickly and effectively from your mobile devices.
Here is a list of the top 4 mental health apps to consider downloading this year.
You can get connected with a licensed therapist in just a few minutes with Talkspace. You fill out a few questions about yourself and what you're looking for and the app matches you with a therapist.
The best part is that you can meet with your therapist over a video call, so you don't have to leave your house!
Betterhelp is similar to Talkspace. You enter your information, connect with a therapist, and book an appointment right away.
Betterhelp offers support through text, phone, or video.
LARKR can connect you with a therapist, but the app does so much more than that! You can access free guided meditation sessions or start a mood journal.
The goal of LARKR is to help you learn more about your mental health and how to improve it. It encourages you to care for your mental health just like you do with your physical health.
So if you're ready to prioritize your emotional and mental wellbeing this year, take a look at LARKR.
