Best For You

The Worth Warrior app is Best For You’s app of the month for September 2023.

A graphic introducing the app of the month: Worth Warrior. There’s an image of a phone with lines coming out of it to form an arrow shape. There’s also the Worth Warrior logo: a wiggling arrow in a gradient from blue to purple.
About Worth Warrior
The Worth Warrior app is designed to help young people manage negative body image, low self-worth, and related eating difficulties or disorders.
The app is based around the idea that we can learn to challenge our thoughts and change the things we do in response, which, in turn, can change how we feel too. For example, there’s an activity to help you think about the way you speak to yourself, identify whether you’re falling into common, unhelpful ways of thinking, and come up with a positive response. You can also set goals to change actions related to how you treat your body (including eating), and challenge the way you view your body by considering the difference between facts and fiction. There are also plenty of ideas for managing difficult emotions.
The app also has information about eating disorders and specific topics like social media, perfectionism, and eating over special occasions.
In the ‘keeping safe’ section, you can view any ‘golden’ thoughts you‘ve saved from activities, as well as building a safety net with things you can to do to help yourself when things are difficult, as well as people you can contact.
Finally, there are tools you can use to check in with yourself. Some are about reming yourself of why you want to work on your body image, self-worth, and/or eating or giving you a motivation boost, while others help you keep track of which activities you find most helpful, or give you a journal space to safely express yourself.
If you’d like more information about the evidence base behind the Worth Warrior app, there’s a PDF Worth Warrior app user guide on the stem4 website. stem4 is the charity that developed Worth Warrior.
Two screenshots from the Worth Warrior app. The first shows the self-monitoring activities available, including where you can save your motivations to change, track activities you’ve tried, journal, and view daily motivators. The second screenshot shows the activities that help you make changes – you can change the: story, action, emotion, and way you view your body.

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.
