AnxietyCoach is an app that was developed to help users reduce fear, worries and anxiety. Created by Mayo Clinic, this app offers multiple features for addressing anxiety. ‘Learn’ provides educational information about anxiety and its treatment and a ‘Checkup’ section to help with tracking symptoms over time. The ‘To Do List’ guides the user through making a list of feared activities and then completing the tasks. Finally the ‘Messages and Alerts’ section alerts the user when there are new tasks to complete.
