Apps, Functional Tools and Websites

Welcome to the apps and tools source page of the Anxiety Road Podcast. These are some, but not all of the apps and functional websites and tools for anxiety and mental health resources. I hope to add to the page when possible. Please review the terms of service and permissions when considering installing an app or using a web based service.

For those new here, this blog and podcast is the involuntary journey finding medical, behavioral health, meditation, relaxation and x=the unknown treatment options and resources for people that have anxiety, panic attacks and phobias too. This podcast is treatment agnostic, meaning with a very few exception it is open to the wide range of choices for treating an anxiety condition/disorder.
