Utah has a free stress management app
SALT LAKE CITY— Stress. Eric Tadehara, Assistant Director at the Utah Department Of Substance Abuse And Mental Health, says there is a lot of it.
“There are various issues happening in our culture right now and I think life is extremely stressful.” His office has just released a free app to help Utah citizens with the stress of COVID-19.
It’s called the myStrength app. It’s a free download, and Tadehara says once you start it, it gets to know you. “It basically walks you through a tutorial with some basic questions about how YOU’RE doing.” He says the program’s knowledge is broad.
“If you’re depressed, anxious, having issues with parenting, specific COVID-19 issues, crisis management… it can point you to resources to help.” He says it may be as simple as recommending a new exercise program or finding some indoor activities with the kids.
If your stress is more serious, myStrength can work in conjunction with a therapist you’re already seeing or find emergency services.
There are a couple of ways to get myStrength. Go to the Department’s website DSAMH.Utah.gov here. Or you can download myStrength from Google Play or Apple’s App Store using the code UtahDHS.
