I would use this tool if i am ever experiencing a tough time and also testing if i may be feeling anxious for a longer period of time in my life. I really like how extensive and helpful the information, coming from a reliable source. I also like how helplines were included for those situations that may be becoming out of hand.
It's good for reminding people how to calm down.
