A tool to support people understand and self-manage anxiety
Molehill Mountain is an app to help autistic people understand and self-manage anxiety. It does this by having a really simple interface. That basically lets you monitor and track where your anxiety is coming from. It’s not too complex and easy enough for a teenager to get their head around and adults/parents.
We frequently advise several strategies to help young people cope with stress during test season and throughout the year. To ensure that young people have strong mental health and are in a good position to learn, use breathing exercises or headspace. However, a lot of these apps are inappropriate for autistic people to relieve tension and anxiety, who require specific techniques.
So Molehill is great because it is one of the few apps created with autistic individuals in mind. Molehill Mountain is used to help autistic people understand and self-manage anxiety based on data from studies on anxiety in autistic people. It was created by Autistica, a UK charity with researchers from King’s College London, developed and tested by parents and people with autism.
