Self-help for Anxiety Management
By University of the West of England
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
SAM is a friendly app that offers a range of self-help methods for people who are serious about learning to manage their anxiety.
SAM has been developed by a university team of psychologists, computer scientists and student users. Established methods of self-help have been combined with high standards of usability to provide an engaging, flexible, and practical resource.
The key features of SAM are:
• Clearly laid out menus
• User guidance
• External links
• Self-monitoring of anxiety with graphical display
• 25 self-help options covering: Information about anxiety, Thinking and anxiety, Physical relaxation, Mental relaxation, Health and Anxiety
• Guidance on putting self-help into practice
• Closed social network of SAM users
The content of SAM is presented in various media formats in order to support users in learning about anxiety and practicing self-help. Although not text-heavy, users will need to study the guidance to get the best out of SAM. Users are encouraged to build their own Anxiety Toolkit of SAM resources that they find helpful and to draw on this for regular practice in managing situations that are associated with anxiety.
SAM may be used with or without the support of a registered health practitioner but you may wish to consult with your local health or well-being practitioner if you are uncertain about using SAM.

General bug fixes
It's a simple yet effective app. It really helps coping with anxiety. Filling your own toolkit depending on what helps you is great. Also the "help for anxiety NOW" is one of the best things in this app.
I wish there was even more tools or exercises to cope with anxiety, but I understand it's not easy to come up with/find effective ones. I myself really like the exercises where you need to look after yourself with the questions.
Thank you for the app makers.
