App Review: Clear Fear

In the age of technology, why not use your smartphone to help you manage your mental health? The UK-based charity stem4 is an organization devoted to promoting adolescent mental health. They created the app Clear Fear to help people manage anxiety, and it's great for all ages. 

Here's how the app can help you:

  1. Provides education about the different types of anxiety.

  2. Includes an anxiety tracker so you can collect data to learn more about your patterns and triggers. 

  3. Gives suggestions for how to express your anxiety.

  4. Allows you to set goals for yourself. 

  5. You can create a personalized plan for ways to cope with anxiety that work for you. 

  6. Includes breathing and mindfulness exercises.

  7. Includes a guided exercise for managing a panic attack in the moment. 

  8. Includes CBT-style techniques for managing anxiety. 

It’s free! Check it out here.
