A group of mindyourmind youth volunteers participated in an intensive brainstorming weekend to develop some initial ideas for a mood-tracker App to be developed by Kids Help Phone. Their two final ideas - a Stress Buster App, and a Life Log App, were then voted on by youth visiting the Kids Help Phone website. In the end, Kids Help Phone decided to combine both innovative ideas into one great App and the Always There App was born! Special thanks to Oline, Jason, Joe, Amanda and Adi for their participation and contributions.
Introducing the Always There app! The Always There app provides a password protected space for you to log your feelings, flip through a ton of youth-submitted tips, inspirational quotes, and jokes aimed at helping you cope with stress. You can access tip sheets offline on a variety of emotional health topics and more. Finally, the app can also connect you directly with a Kids Help Phone counsellor over the phone, or through Live Chat.
Log your feelings daily; look for patterns as you fill in your feelings calendar.
