NZ funds online tools for practical mental health support

The New Zealand government is funding three mental health resources to help people look after their wellbeing during the coronavirus pandemic, including an app developed by rugby player John Kirwan that provides tips and techniques for dealing with anxiety, the health journal app Melon, and a cognitive behaviour therapy tool called Staying on Track.

Access to the apps is being funded as part of the government's $NZ500 million COVID-19 response health package, and a version of the Melon app specifically for 13 to 24 year-olds is being developed now.
