Art app helps teens with depression

Posted on August 27, 2015

Creatives may be more prone to depression, but art also has the capacity to provide comfort for those dealing with mental illness.

An essential part of what it means to live the good life for many, a report has found that ‚Äč52% of Australians say the arts provide an improved sense of wellbeing and happiness.

Harnessing the power of art to improve our general wellbeing, the team behind the online initiative Rosie Respect have created the free iPhone app Wake Up Rosie.

Dedicated to helping young women develop courage and resilience, Wake Up Rosie is a modern alarm clock that helps people start their day in the right frame of mind through inspiring music and design. Each time the alarm sounds, Wake Up Rosie will send the user an inspirational image designed to give you a boost.
