What is the myStrength app?
The myStrength app brings a personalized experience that provides inspiration, cultivates resilience, and strengthens skills to build strong mental health. By providing a personalized program that includes interactive activities, in-the-moment coping tools, inspirational resources, and community support, you can track preferences and goals, current emotional states, and ongoing life events to improve your awareness and change behaviors.
The myStrength app now includes COVID-19 information:
- Staying Connected While Social Distancing
- Parenting in Challenging Times
- Finding Your Inner Calm in Turbulent Times
- Keeping Your Relationship Strong During COVID-19
We encourage everyone to take care of their mental health and tools like these can help.
