A new mobile app has been launched to make mental health help more accessible and relevant for young people regardless of their location.
The ‘niggle by Kids Helpline’ mobile app has hundreds of built in resources and guided strategies that promote self-help. It offers valuable information to teens and young people to check and monitor their mental health and well-being.
The app is youth-driven and has been designed with young people for young people. “We think young people are going to love the confidentiality and convenience of this new mental health app,” said a spokesperson.
The evidence-based app was designed to suit teenagers and young people 13 to 25 years of age.
The niggle app is completely novel in how it blends traditional and mobile mental health interventions to benefit the wellbeing of young Australians.
