Making social health available digitally

Because there’s a stigma to mental health/depression and getting help, there have been a number of kiwi mental health apps developed recently offering self-help for young people.

The data suggests people who go through the apps are more likely to seek personal help if they still need it, than those who haven’t used apps.

Some great apps include:

Aunty Dee

Aunty Dee is a free online tool for anyone who needs some help working through a problem or problems. It doesn’t matter what the problem is, you can use Aunty Dee to help you work it through.

Sparx

SPARX is a computer program that helps young people with mild to moderate depression. It can also help if you’re feeling anxious or stressed. It is aimed for 12-19 year olds, but that’s just a guide.

The Lowdown

Sometimes life’s ups and downs are more than just the usual ups and downs.
If you’re stuck feeling bad we’ll help you figure out if it could be anxiety or depression. Whatever’s going on you’ll find ideas and people who can help you get unstuck.
