Help can be at your fingertips.
I have worked with the National Center for PTSD for years. Through government funding, the center’s excellent team of psychologists and other mental health professionals have created apps that are free for the public.
These are NOT replacements for therapy. Rather, they are best used when working through issues while finding a therapist your trust OR after you have already completed therapy and want to maintain your gains.
All of the apps are created by and tested by psychologists. This means that there is a higher standard for information. These are well-researched apps that do not sell your data or try to sell you anything!
Because this is government funded, I do not financially benefit from you using these apps. Therefore, you have nothing to lose and only your mental health to gain.
Consider checking them out.
