This app was created in response to personal experience of mental health problems and clinical research on expressive writing therapy. We have carefully selected a range of coping tools that are proven to help you to self-soothe and take control of your emotional wellbeing. Expressive writing (the practice of pouring your heart and mind into words without worrying about usual writing conventions) is good medicine. James Pennebaker, a professor of psychology at The University of Texas–Austin who conducted research into expressive writing says, "This can help people sleep better, feel and think better, and have richer social lives, all of which can bolster immune function and improve health."
