Pacifica helps people dealing with anxiety, depression or stress. The application integrates many cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) principles into a user-friendly and practical app. Content is oriented based on user goals and preferences. Many tools are offered including lessons, journaling, daily objectives, follow-up of mental health parameters, meditation and more. A community lets people express their feelings and engage with other users dealing with similar issues. Thus, the app is extremely complete.

The app is available for free or as a monthly, annual or lifetime paid subscription. Although subscription is not necessary in order to use most of the app's functionalities, it will allow you to access more content.
