More about Stressheads
Every year in April one topic dominates YouthNet’s services: Exam stress. And once the actual exams are out the way, the “what do I do next” and “what if I don’t pass” questions start, leading to a second surge of stressed-out young people.
To help our users get stress under control, we released Stressheads – an app designed as a fun-to-use distraction tool for 16-25 year olds to turn to when they feel under pressure.
Stressheads has already been a hit, with 1000 downloads within the first month of the launch. As well as the People’s Choice Category, we’ve been nominated for a Digital Health Award alongside Don’t Bottle It Up, London’s Air Ambulance and BuddyApp.
