Best For You

The Combined Minds app is Best For You’s app of the month for  2022.

A graphic introducing the app of the month: Combined Minds. There’s an image of a phone with lines coming out of it to form an arrow shape. There’s also the Combined Minds app logo – two links joined together, with a gradient fading from deep blue through purple to pink.


The Combined Minds app helps friends and family to support a young person with a mental health condition. It also has support for the friends and family themselves.

The app covers anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, and digital addiction. For each of these, there is information about the condition and supporting someone, as well as a safety plan you can fill in together and activities you can try with the person struggling (and a way to keep track of which ones help most). It also has tips to help friends and family look after themselves, and signposting to further help and support.

About the Best For You app library

There are thousands of apps that claim to boost wellbeing, but it can be difficult to know which ones you can trust with your mental health and wellbeing.

Best For You worked with ORCHA (the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps) to create the Best For you app library. Every app in the library has been tested to make sure the information it contains is accurate – and that the app is safe and trustworthy too.

You can search the library for specific apps to see if they’ve been reviewed. You can also search by condition (for example, depression) or symptom (for example, feeling anxious) – and you can search for apps to support with specific things, for example, meditation or mindfulness. The library also has lists of top-rated apps for various topics. Find previous apps of the month on the Best For You website.

You can filter the apps shown, for example, to only show apps that will work on your device or to only show apps that are totally free.

Visit the Best For You app library and start your journey to finding apps to support your wellbeing.
