It is said a lot of the time that technology is unhealthy. However, for mental health apps, the internet etc. can act as a positive. Especially in younger people, mental health goes undiagnosed a lot of the time. One way of giving young people control over their mental health is using apps on their phones. Coming to terms with something like mental health problems are difficult. For adolescents, the internet is a useful tool for them to take action. Also, during the recovery period, technology provides the tools to help manage the important tasks, continuing to improve and maintain mental health. Another effective method showing how technology improves health.
