24 Mental Health Apps for Improving Mood, Mind, and Mental Fitness

Taking care of our mental health is just as important as taking care of our physical health, and an increasing number of mobile apps are coming out that help you do just that.

We are always on the lookout for new mental health resources to share, so to save you time and energy tracking it all down, we've compiled this list of mobile apps that can support you in your mental fitness.

There are lots of apps out there that have a variety of functions--some for very specific needs, others serve a more general purpose. In this list, we break it all down, so you can find the best fit for you.

QUICK BREAKDOWN: BEST MENTAL HEALTH APPS

This list is maintained and curated by Mentally Fit. We are on a mission to 'Bridge the Gap' in mental health, making it affordable, accessible and relatable for people worldwide.

There are many paths to recovery. Whats right for one person, may not be right for another. That's why we give you all the options, as much well-researched information as possible -- so  you can take it all into account and make the most well-informed decision possible.

We hope you'll find some tools here that you can use and perhaps some you'll recommend them to others! Please let us know if you have any questions or additions for this list!
