Mental Health Awareness Week 2023

As part of ‘Mental Health Awareness Week 2023’, our YEPS Mental Health & Wellbeing officers have been working with their young people to find out what amazing apps are available to support wellbeing and with challenges around anxiety. You can find these app suggestions on this page and come recommended by our team members and young people. Hopefully you will find these apps useful. There is also a link to access digital Anxiety toolkit created by the Mental Health Foundation for this awareness week.
