May is Mental Health Month!

Today we are sharing a great app called Virtual Hope Box. Virtual Hope Box is a multi-media coping skill app designed for people who are struggling emotionally. It contains four main features: distraction, inspiration, relaxation, and coping skills. The distraction techniques include games that require focus, like Sudoku and word puzzles. The relaxation techniques offer a variety of guided and self-controlled meditation exercises. The coping techniques offer suggestions for activities that reduce stress. The inspiration section offers brief quotes to improve mood and motivation. The app can be used in collaboration with a mental health provider through the “coping cards” feature, which can be programmed to address specific problem areas. The relaxation tools can also be used with a clinical professional or other meditation partner, if desired. To access the app click HERE.
