How Mindfulness Apps Can Enhance Children's Mental Health

Children, aged 10-19, are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress, anxiety, and depression, with one in seven facing mental health disorders  World Health Organization (WHO).

Mindfulness, the practice of non-judgmental present-moment awareness, effectively reduces stress, improves focus, and enhances emotional regulation.

Mindfulness apps offer children accessible ways to learn and practice mindfulness through guided meditations and engaging activities. A recent University of California, Berkeley study found that just four weeks of using a mindfulness app led to significant reductions in stress, anxiety, and depression among children. 

“Mindfulness apps equip children with coping skills, helping them manage stress and emotions by being present,” says Dr. Amishi Jha, Associate Professor of Psychology, at the University of Miami.
