Strong Minds is an educational mindfulness app intended for parents or guardians to use with a child to aid in identifying and understanding their feelings. Interactive stories are presented in which the user is encouraged to help each character change their perspective and thoughts to remain positive and solve problems. Users can use the “Find Your Feelings” section to identify, define and describe their moods and thoughts. Users may use the “Change Your Thoughts” section to address the feeling, identify unhelpful thoughts and implement the tools from the stories to process emotions. Some of these tools include self empowerment, problem solving, and having gratitude. Both entries from these sections can be referred back to in the History tab. Strong Minds also offer ten guided meditations from three categories breathing, focus, and connection.
