If you are getting stressed out and depressed owing to studies or relationships, there is an app that helps tide over mental tiredness.

The researchers at University of Michigan have developed a stress-busting app that helps students to overcome depression.

The students at Ann Arbor college are using the app to promote wellness and encouraging classmates to join health-centric events on campus.

"Everyone is looking at their phones and tablets so this is a welcome move to ease the pressure," Jordan Friedman, the developer of the wellness app called Stressbusters, was quoted as saying.

The app is also being used by students in a number of US universities, he said.

It includes talks and videos that help students lessen stress via news alerts and inspirational messages.

For students with an emergency, the free-to-download app has a one-touch dial button that links students directly with a responder.

The Stressbusters app is available at Apple's App Store and Google Play for Android devices.
