Chill Panda listed in ‘Top 5’ Mental Health Apps

CGA Simulation’s Chill Panda app, which aims to reduce anxiety in children, has been listed as a ‘top 5’ app by both’s “Apps That Can Help Your Anxious Child”, and a review of Mental Health apps by Dr Micklewright, NHS Doctor and Digital Health Specialist.

Chill Panda teaches children simple techniques for recognising and managing anxiety. When signs of anxiety are detected, users are prompted to complete wellbeing activities based on movement, distraction, or breathing exercises, which Dr Micklewright says are “well-used strategies for helping children manage worry or anxiety.”

CGA are continuing to develop the app, and have recently been working on a feature where users can measure their heartrate, then use a sliding scale to indicate how they are feeling, and the app will place them on a ‘mood grid’ and enable them to easily track their progress.
