About this app

The School of Life App is a digital resource for making time for your mental wellbeing. It’s a tool for understanding more about yourself, making positive life-changes, and discovering the elements of better mental health and emotional maturity.

The app delivers you all the knowledge you need to:

- Overcome anxiety

- Improve mental health and wellbeing
- Navigate the challenges of living in the modern world
- Find, maintain or end a romantic relationship
- Get the most out of your career/ working life
- Explore an interest in art, philosophy and psychology

The app addresses you - at all times - in a voice that is understanding, kind, insightful and full of good ideas.

The app contains hundreds of films, images, articles, quotes and questionnaires that give you a complete package to improve your mental health and help you realise your potential. This is a piece of technology to transform your state of mind; your phone will never have been so useful.

Prioritising mental health is key, but when time is short, we often let things slip. This app delivers important reminders and ideas at speed wherever you might be. With thousands of lessons ranging from two to 30 minutes, make progress whenever it suits you. It’s like having your personal therapist always in your pocket.

This is a practical tool to help you understand your past, your personality and your psyche. You’ll be able to make better choices in relationships and in careers - and suffer from fewer regrets and needless fears. Unlock the best possible version of yourself.

The app gets to know you better with time - delivering ideas at precisely the moment you need them, so that you can resist panic and despair and keep your real priorities in mind.

The app represents exceptional value for money, giving you access to The School of Life’s entire library of content and teaching. Get a whole year of self-knowledge for less than the cost of a single therapy session.

This is the therapist I've been looking for - broad perspectives, art and self-discovery as tools for healing, and as interested in the human experience as in providing guidance to me as a specific person. I've always felt that my problems are very human ones, and I'd like to hear from a student of history and philosophy a little more than I need someone to inspect my personal life. The writing is exceptional, using a vocabulary that asks me to read more carefully. I feel seen and self-reliant.

Good content, but I was disappointed to find that most articles are not available for audio consumption. I listen to audiobooks or podcasts (or The Economist) while driving, or while working out, and The School of Life articles would be perfect to integrate in these situations. If all the content was available to listen to (with a playback speed setting) as well as to read, I would resubscribe to this app in a heartbeat.

I love it. The level of insight school of life brings to viewers is appreciated, and it's nice to know people have somewhere to go when desiring answers. My most crucial complaint is the subscription barrier. I understand the need to have some form of income flowing. Nothing is free, after all. But others, including myself, struggle maintaining routines while on a journey of self-help. Spending money on something you don't know you can commit to is deterring. Maybe consider a free trial or ads?

Hello, thanks for taking the time to give us such detailed feedback. Of course we totally understand the current financial climate, which is why we offer two plans; annual & monthly. The monthly subscription is a rolling contract that you can cancel at any point, we also offer a free trial with zero obligation. I hope this helps :)
