Stress Gym is a web-based educational program that provides information and suggested techniques for managing stress, worry, and negative moods. Organized in 8 modules, users can complete each section at their own pace (users are advised to print out any finished materials because the website cannot yet store data) and revisit any area at any time for additional practice. Stress Gym may be a useful aid for individuals struggling with mild-to-moderate problems or those who are looking to learn more about managing problems in daily living. However, this program does not appear to have been revised for some time, and users should be cautious when using programs without security updates.
