The National Center for Telehealth and Technology develops technologies to support psychological health and traumatic brain injury recovery in the military community. They developed the Breathe2Relax appto help with mood control, anger and stabilization.
The Breathe2Relax app, available on the iOS and Android, helps users learn the stress management skill called diaphragmatic breathing. According to the National Center for Telehealth and Technology:
Breathe2Relax is a portable stress management tool which provides detailed information on the effects of stress on the body and instructions and practice exercises to help users learn the stress management skill called diaphragmatic breathing.Breathing exercises have been documented to decrease the body’s ‘fight-or-flight’ (stress) response, and help with mood stabilization, anger control, and anxiety management. Breathe2Relax can be used as a stand-alone stress reduction tool, or can be used in tandem with clinical care directed by a healthcare worker.
