Rootd is the award-winning, female led app for anxiety & panic attacks. As seen in Women's Health, Time Magazine, Healthline and more.

“I’ve suffered from panic attacks for almost 10 years. I’ve done CBT, medication, meditation, but nothing helped me in the moment when that panic attack hit, until I downloaded Rootd. Rootd makes it feel like someone is with me, even when I’m alone. I owe my continued stability to this simple genius app. It's a MUST for all who are facing the same type of war.” @RainyNally

Stop, understand, and overcome anxiety & panic attacks with Rootd’s therapist-approved panic button, guided deep breathing, anxiety journal, soothing visualizations, stats page, emergency contact, and lessons. Helping you overcome anxiety and regain confidence.

We set out to build Rootd after suffering from panic attacks and anxiety for several years. The only help we could find was either too expensive, ineffective, or poorly designed. Our mission is to help others find accessible relief from their panic and anxiety, and to end the stigma against those affected.

Finally, an app for conquering panic attacks and anxiety that blends a guided process for both immediate and long term relief, with clean and engaging design.


Rootd’s core features and content are completely free, and always will be. This includes:

A panic button to bring a swift end to panic attacks based on the latest techniques in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Find some peace of mind by learning about where anxiety comes from, how our bodies and minds experience panic attacks, and why this all might be happening to you.

The perfect tool to practice deep breathing daily and find calm during times of stress.

The journal tool encourages users to identify moods and habits helping to identify subconscious triggers of anxiety and panic attacks.

Guided body scans, visualizations, and nature sounds to get rooted when feeling anxious.

For when you need to hear a friendly voice, you can immediately call a friend, family member, or nearby help center directly from the app.

Take pride in your healing progress and gain appreciation for how far you’ve come.

When you are ready to begin permanently changing your relationship with panic attacks and anxiety, and to continue your journey towards lifelong relief, you can upgrade to unlock Full Access to Rootd, including:

Learn changes you can make and exercises you can perform in the short term that provide relief, manage heightened anxiety, and instil a calm mind.

Helpful relief

I downloaded this app three days ago in the midst of a panic attack. I used the rootr button and went through the prompts a few times until I felt a bit calmer. There is not much that can help me when I’m in the middle of a panic attack as badly as that one, so the fact that it brought me even a little but ofpeace helped. It was especially helpful to be reminded that I have survived every other panic attack, something that is easy to overlook in the midst of one! I also love the journal feature, it makes it easy to keep track of my panic attacks and also look at the good aspects of my day as well. Unfortunately, due to financial reasons, I don’t have the means of upgrading to the premium version but I would definitely look into that if my situation was different. The developers definitely deserve it. The only suggestion I have is to add a few more helpful reminders while using the rootr button. I went through it three times before I felt calm and the sayings started to lose the effect after the first time. Other than that, great app!

Thank you so much for this lovely review! We're happy you found Rootd! If you are having any difficulty upgraded to the premium version you can email and we'd be happy to do what we can to help. We're also happy to think of adding more prompts to the Rootr.

Thanks again and all the best as you keep uncovering your strength and confidence! Hugs!

It helps!

I am really grateful for this app! I have started having panic attacks recently and was very confused and worried about my health. I have done a few medical exams, but did not find any serious issues. However, every time i am starting to feel anxious, i keep on thinking that something is wrong with me and wind up having a panic attack feeling like i am suffocating and losing ground. Reading the Rootd explanation of how panic attacks work really helped me calm down and prevented an onset of another attack. Just by having an app on my phone i am already feeling more confident that i can deal with a panic attack (which hopefully won’t occur at a level it has before simply due to the knowledge of having Rootd support). Thank you, Ana

Hi there Ana!

Yes, you are describing what so many with anxiety and panic attacks unfortunately go through. We're so happy that you found Rootd and that you can feel more confident having this knowledge under your belt. Thanks so much for leaving this thoughtful review so that others experiencing what you were can see that there is a solution out there.
All the best!

Awesome Potential, Needs more features

I suffer from Panic Disorder, and I have been having terrible panic attacks on a daily basis more recently. I needed something that could help me on a whim, and found out about this app through Reddit. This is such a great, cute, encouraging app. It really does help me feel “rooted” to read through all the facts if I catch myself early enough. However, my panic attacks are severe and last for several hours. I would like to see something that you can do for a long term, not just repeating facts you already know. Breathing exercises, a soothing mini game game, or even option to journal would be helpful for those hour long attacks. Something to keep your mind busy and distracted. I wish you didn’t have to pay for the extra features. Anything with mental health should be free, all though I get it’s still a business. Great app though! I’ve used it so much lately. I’ve survived four panic attacks and have 33 warrior points already!

Hello, and thank you for your thoughtful feedback!

Lately we have added the Breathr tool and a body scan/nature sound tool called the Visualizr. Have you had a chance to try these out? We'll definitely consider adding other tools in as well, but we are a very small team (currently 2 people) and don't have the resources to add everything we please at the moment.

Thanks again for letting us know what you think and we hope the new features prove helpful for you! Please let us know at

All the best on your journey, and congrats on that impressive warrior point score!
