What does the app do?
This online CBT based course has been designed to help users understand and learn how to manage generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), utilising a case study to provide detailed psycho-education and skills training.
It consists of six stories based on the one case example of ‘Liz’ who suffers from generalized anxiety, detailing her journey and progress. Following each comic book form story, there is a 10-15 minute lesson for users to complete to reinforce their learning and practice skills, followed by the Tools and Tips section containing resources and worksheets.
Prior to starting the course and each module, users are asked a series of questions relating to their emotional wellbeing, and the results can be viewed in the Dashboard section of the host website Just A Thought.
The course can be done with the support of a health professional or users can complete on their own/self guided. It is available to anyone residing in New Zealand or the Pacific Island nations.
✔ Written in an easy, warm and engaging style
✔ At the end of each story, there is a lesson for users to complete allowing reinforcement and practise of skills, following by a Tools and Tips section of 24 resources, including one audio mindfulness exercise, as well as six helpful Frequently Asked Questions handouts relating to each story, addressing concerns/challenges that may arise and what to expect. Once users commence the course, all the Tools and Tips can be accessed either via the Dashboard, or in related sections at the end of each story.
✔ Users can either sign up for free on their own, or through their clinician e.g. GP/psychologist, who can 'refer' the user and monitor their progress and mental health questionnaire scores.
✘ There is no mobile app, but the web page is mobile-optimised. Best suited for tablets, laptops or desktop computers.
