SLiM DIGITAL is proud to deliver In The Zone – the Territory’s first youth mindfulness and empowerment mobile application.  It is made by youth, for youth and is set to be released on IOS in April 2018 and Android to follow.

The app is created by ShoutOut! headed up by Pritika Desai, the 2015 NT Young Achiever of the year.

Watch the interview below with app founder, Pritika Desai,to hear more about the app.

The app aims to provide high quality, culturally appropriate and innovative approach to mental health, assisting Territorians to enjoy the highest quality of life.

“We built the app because other apps in the market are not built by young people for young people. We found other apps with really great features, but we wanted to put them together all in one platform” explains Pritika.

The need for such an app is vital as this recent report by Mission Australia and Black Dog Institute reveals:

“In 2016, just under one in four young people aged 15-19 years who responded to the Youth Survey met the criteria for having a probable serious mental illness. Concerningly, there has been a significant increase in the proportion of young people meeting this criteria over the past five years (rising from 18.7% in 2012 to 22.8% in 2016).1

In The Zone takes you on a mental health journey, helping young people develop strategies to cope and seek the support they need.

The app is multi dimensional and includes friendly mindfulness activities, meditations (by recording artists Phily and L-Fresh Lion), breathing exercises, drawing and music playlists.  There is also the inclusion of free youth, community and mental health services across the Northern Territory that can be searched based on location, as well as crisis support lines and a contact list of personal supports that the user can create.

Join ShoutOut! at the Shak on 13th April 2018.
