1. Moodpath - Free and available on IOS and AndroidHeart description on it Smiley Happy 

Each day it'll ask you 3 times, morning, lunch and night how you are feeling and you can write any notes on how you are feeling. Over a 2 week period it collects data on your daily moods and will give you a general result and even a doctors referral explaining your current situation with depression and anxiety. Here is an example of mine from a few months ago Smiley Wink They also offer some emotional health resources such as mindfulness Smiley HappyIMG_6414.PNG

Re: mental health apps

I LOVE THIS THREAD SO MUCH!!! I'm working on a fair few things regarding technology and mental health at the moment, so I am totally on board with this!

 

The BeyondNow app is so great and one that I use a lot. I do quite a bit of advisory stuff with BeyondBlue so have helped developed the app in different ways, and the way it's turned out is fantastic. Would absolutely recommend to anyone else who struggles with staying safe sometimes.

 

Another one that's really good and hasn't been mentioned yet is MoodMission (free on iOS and Android). You basically tell it how you're feeling and then it gives you different CBT-based strategies to try. You can also unlock badges and achievements as you use the app which is pretty cool Smiley Happy I know the team who developed it in another capacity and they're awesome researchers who are really passionate about mental health.

Then there's also Smiling Mind (free on iOS and Android), which a lot of people will be familiar with. It's a meditation-based app but without all the hippy dippy bullshit. I'm not a big mindfulness meditation person, but I can deal with their ones Smiley Tongue They have meditations for specific age groups, too, so you can tailor it to suit your needs Smiley Happy

There are so many more apps out there, too! What does everyone else like to use? Smiley Happy

Re: mental health apps

Oooo this is a great idea @litgym! I use Calm Harm for anxiety every now and then, but I didn't realise that a different app existed specifically for that! I'll have to check it out. I really like the idea of MoodPath, I've been wanting to track my mood for a few months now.

I tried to create an account for MoodMission @lokifish, but it seemed to crash / 'get stuck' during the process for me. :/

Re: mental health apps

@nyke hmm, maybe it's an internet thing? I tried downloading it on my tablet and creating an account and it worked fine.

I need to check out Calm Harm! Sounds like a great app Smiley Happy
