Thanks for the great list. Moodgym is very good but now charge for new members. Anyone with an existing free account has until the end of this year to finish the programme before your account is closed.

RxmindMe is no longer available in the AppStore and isn’t compatible with iOS 11. Not sure if available for Android.

I recently added discord on my phone and I know its for gaming but there are so many other groups on there. Some for learning a language and science. But I found one for people with avoident personality disorder and it felt good being around people that share that. We even watched a movie together yesterday through internet.

^^^ I could have sworn I commented on this app a while back. Obviously didn’t hit the post button lol. There was a radio interview with the person who developed the app and it sounded really good so I had a peek it it and there are so many tips and methods to help youngsters to express their feelings and support them. A fantastic idea.
