Helpful apps & websites

If you are concerned about your mental health, drug or/and alcohol use, or simply want to improve your wellbeing, there are lots of things you can do right now.                                                             

Finding useful information, chatting online with peers and professionals, and downloading apps are a few initial steps you can take.

Everyone's situation and needs are different, so what is useful right now will vary from one person to the next.

Digital mental health resources can often be just as effective as talking to someone face-to-face. So if you're not comfortable talking to someone in person, or are finding it difficult to find the right help, this may be the way to go. Whatever you choose, trust is a very important factor

Below you'll find a list of apps and website resources that you might find useful.

You can search for these apps on your preferred app platform for Android or Apple devices, and download them if you think they might be useful.
