Best For You

The Molehill Mountain app is Best For You’s app of the month for July 2023.

A graphic introducing the app of the month: Mountain Molehill. There’s an image of a phone with lines coming out of it to form an arrow shape. There’s also the Molehill Mountain logo: a mountain range with a river cutting through it.
About Molehill Mountain
The Molehill Mountain app is designed to help autistic people understand and manage anxiety.
Molehill Mountain uses CBT techniques that have been adapted to better fit the needs of autistic people. In the app you can track your mood and use graphs and calendars to see how it changes. There’s support if you struggle to recognise emotions.
The app has tips and tools that you ‘unlock’ one at a time so it doesn’t feel overwhelming. You can also ‘lock’ stresses in ‘worry mountain’, try a breathing exercise, and add a specific emergency contact.

Two screenshots from the Molehill Mountain app. The first shows the options to begin your daily check-in – you can check in, go to the worry mountain, do a breathing exercise, or get help right now. The second screenshot shows the app asking you to categorise a worry (the example is exam results), the options are: social anxiety, sensory issue, general anxiety, or specific fear.

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.
