Here is another professionally-reviewed mobile app to help you look after your health and wellbeing.
The Check-in app was designed by beyondblue and Two Bulls in consultation with young people to help take the fear out of having a conversation with a friend who might be struggling. This is often not an easy conversation to have and the Check-in app provide building blocks for how you would approach your friend and give you a confidence boost to know what to do if your friend does need support
The Check-in is for anyone who wants to check in with a friend but is concerned about saying the wrong thing or making the situation worse.
The app takes you through f our steps, getting you to think about where you might check in, what you might say and how might you support your friend. There is also a section showing you things to consider, such as what if my friend denies there is a problem or what if I say something silly.
After you have had your conversation you can go back into the app and rate how it went. The app will then give you advice on the next steps.
There are also links to where you can get support and tips from young people.
