The Check-In App – Supporting a friend

Youth Beyond Blue, Australia

‘Check-In’ is a free app which is designed for young people who want to check in with a friend who may be struggling with mental health difficulties but are concerned about saying the wrong thing or making the situation worse.

The app takes the user through four steps to think about:

  • ‘Where you might check in’
  • ‘What you might say’
  • ‘How you might support your friend’
  • ‘Things to consider (e.g. what if my friend denies there is a problem, or what if I say something silly’)

The app is available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
