Great Tool

I’ve never given a review before, but I felt this app warranted one. I’ve only had it maybe two days now, but I think it’s been really helpful. My psychologist recommended it to me. So far I’ve been using the thought diary and I really like that the app really gets you to assess and analyze the thoughts you’re having. There are also some other great features like the videos and safety planning that I’m excited to utilize. I often have trouble being consistent with things, but I’m hoping to be consistent with this. I think it’ll really help long term. If you’re struggling with depression or anxiety and you’re looking for something to challenge your negative thoughts, I definitely recommend giving this a try. For reference, I’m a 20 year old African American female college student. Hope this helps :)

You need this if u are having a hard time!

I have only been using this app for 3 days and it is already changing my mood in a positive way! When I was texting a hotline they recommended this, I’m so glad they did!
