The M3 is, essentially, a mental health score. Keeping track of your M3 is just as important as keeping track of your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. That?s where this app steps in.

While not an official diagnosis, the results can give you a solid sense of how much your anxiety or depression is burdening your everyday life.

Youthbeyondblue The Check-in
The Check-in app was designed by beyondblue and Two Bulls in consultation with young people to help take the fear out of having a conversation with a friend who might be struggling. The app takes you through four steps getting you to think about where you might check in, what you might say and how might you support your friend. There is also a section showing you things to consider, such as what if my friend denies there is a problem or what if I say something silly. After you have had your conversation you can go back into the app and rate how it went. The app will then give you advice on the next steps.
