  • LIST: 5 Apps to Help Your Mental Health
  • As we go through chaotic situations brought by the pandemic, many of us are suffering in silence. Dealing with anxiety, depression, and worst, suicidal thoughts, are the main causes of mental health problems during tough times like this.

    In a published article by PSYCOM, “new digital tools can be used as a supplementary treatment to traditional therapy especially for those who aren’t able to access the support of a mental health practitioner, mental health apps offer valuable support and guidance.”

    So to give you a helping hand while dealing with whatever problem you’re going through right now, we listed down 5 mental health apps for you to pick from.
