Mental health apps


Heather Latter

James Woods, a mental health worker at the Gizhewaadiziwin Health Access Centre, highlighted some apps that can help with mindfulness, meditation, and relaxation at the centre’s open house yesterday. Woods also demonstrated the MUSE system, which offers guided meditation with a bio-feedback headband. He noted with busy, fast-paced lives, it’s important to slow down for a few moments each day to relax, reflect, and rejuvenate in order to become less stressed.
