Clear Fear provides you with a range of ways to manage the symptoms of anxiety.
Developed by a clinician co-collaboratively with young people, Clear Fear uses a Cognitive Behavioural framework to help you change anxious thoughts and emotions, alter anxious behaviours and calm fear responses. It also has helpful descriptions of the different ways in which anxiety presents, resources and a 'grit box' to boost resilience.
It is recommended for the ages of 11-19 years but can be used by a younger group with the support of a parent or carer.
Clear Fear compliments, but does not substitute for the assessment and ongoing support of a mental health professional.

Clearing my fear
I was having a very high level panic and anxiety attack, and remembered a friend mentioning this app. So I downloaded it to try and help me. At first, it was a little difficult to figure out what I needed to input, but that is probably because I couldn’t focus due to the attack. Once I started the activities, I began to calm down, and my head cleared. After a few steps, I can focus again and think straight. It really helped. And now that I’m not in a bad mental space, I can go in and input the information needed. I would recommend downloading it and setting up etc when you’re in a good mental space, just to make it easier for those difficult times. 👍🏻
Super Helpful with Depression
My sister recommended me this app months ago and I hadn’t needed to use it until tonight. Well I wasn’t set up for anything so I’m trying to get everything set up while I’m crying and spiraling downward. When I finally got everything entered and could actually use the app, it was incredibly helpful. After doing one activity my crying stopped and I did a couple more just to make sure that I was calm enough to try to sleep. The only complaint I have is for some reason I couldn’t get the one where you stare at a scene to work. I kept pressing the play button, but nothing happened so I did it with the play button in the middle of the screen, I think I didn’t get the full help and experience from the activity but it did still help some. I would love to see this app continue to grow, and this is now my go to with my emotional struggles.
A couple bugs but overall I like it
When I go to the section to input my age and gender, it won’t let me click the age one, I click it and it just shoots me down to the gender one and won’t even let me select my birthday. Also the notifications don’t seem to be working, I have push notifications on for it and have them turned on but I don’t get notifications for any of my goals. Other than those things I really like the app, it has good information on different mental illnesses and I like all the different features, I just wish the goals thing actually gave me notifications like it said it would.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
