HERE IS A SMALL CLIP FROM THE REPORT ON THESE FREE APPS:
For someone dealing with depression or anxiety, regular visits with a
mental health professional can often be the best solution. But in-person help isn’t always an option, either because of location, scheduling conflicts, or cost.
Now, a new study suggests that a free suite of mobile apps may also provide relief from depression and anxiety symptoms.
The 13 mini-apps, collectively known as IntelliCare, were designed by Northwestern clinicians and based on validated psychology techniques currently used by therapists. They are free of charge and available on GooglePlay; iOS versions will be available soon.
To see how well the apps worked on real-life users, the developers recruited 96 people with elevated symptoms of depression or anxiety. After using the apps for eight weeks, the study participants reported a 50 percent reduction, on average, in those symptoms.
