While no app can replace therapy, there are some great options to learn more about mental health. Dare has an option for a paid upgrade, but the free version is fantastic. Choose what you are struggling with, and you are presented with education about each topic presented by a soothing voice.
You can choose how you want to relax, again with free and paid options. There are both video and audio options that are very relaxing, and you can download your favorites to access them when you aren’t online.
If you’re experiencing a (non-emergency) crisis, they have options for that too! All of the options to de-escalate during a panic or anxiety attack are free to use. The soothing voice talks you through calming down and makes you feel less alone while it’s happening.
I love the free version of Dare for providing mental health education and teaching de-escalation. You can learn more about your brain and get through intense moments between therapy sessions.
