The NHS Apps library (external link) helps people find apps and online tools to help manage their health and wellbeing.

We're working closely with NHSX to rapidly review apps for children and young people’s mental health and make them available via this apps library.

For example, Think Ninja (external link) is an app specifically designed to educate 10-18-year-olds about mental health, emotional wellbeing and to provide skills young people can use to build resilience and stay well.

It has been adapted to COVID-19 to bring self-help knowledge and skills to children and young people (10-18 years old) who may be experiencing increased anxiety and stress during the crisis.


For NHS mental health support, children and young people or their parents or carers can contact their GP or refer to NHS 111 online (external link).
