Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
What's New in Version 1.2.7
Bug fixes and updates for Social Cloud.
Had this app for over a year now and I really like I can track my anxiety and all the self help tools. I'm going to school for nursing and living by myself so things get overwhelming but this app helps me put things in order and relax for a few minutes. I can see things from a clearer point of veiw.
I enjoy the social element of this app. The "Social Cloud" is nice because you're able to get advice from people who will relate to you, or help people that you relate to. A lot of my close internet friends have come from this app.
However, I think the "Anxiety Tracker" would be more convenient if we were able to add notes to our entries.
I didn't understand how to use the app at first, but once I got the hang of it it helped me out so much, especially when I needed it most. Definitely recommend for people with anxiety. The best part is there is a chat, so it's helped me talk about what I'm feeling with other people too.
