The Feeling Good Teens app is Best For You’s app of the month for October 2023.
About Feeling Good Teens
The audio tracks have been designed specifically for young people. They use a variety of techniques, including breathing and positive visualisations. You can listen to the audio tracks however you find most helpful, but the creators recommend seeing whether it helps to listen to the same track every day for a week. The idea is that this helps the positive ideas and images sink in – like how an athlete might repeat a physical exercise to build strength and skill.
You can listen to the tracks whenever you like – as long as you’re somewhere safe, where it doesn’t matter if you fall asleep! Some people find it helpful to listen at night. It’s OK if your mind drifts or if you fall asleep as your mind will still absorb the positive messages – it might even be more effective to not pay too much attention!

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.
