The Anxiety Disorders Association of British Columbia (AnxietyBC™) is a non profit organization established  by a group of concerned individuals, family members, and health professionals that works to increase awareness about anxiety disorders, promote education, and increase access to evidence-based resources and treatments. They have produced over 50 videos on YouTube and actively promote dialogue and exchange information on anxiety and anxiety disorders via their Facebook page.  We highly recommend their  Mindshift app which helps youth and young adults manage anxiety, using step-by-step strategies.

Other free apps we find helpful include: Headspace and Insight Timer.
