2 Apr 2013There is a new mobile phone app out that is aiming to give young people experiencing mental health issues some hope.

The app helps young people deal with Bullying, Homophobia, and Depression through there mobile phone which is a great idea as the person can have it readily available when they need it, it can be tucked away in their phone, out of site and one of a number of apps they may use every day on their phone.

I think its great to have such an app to help fight isolation and despair.
