Moodnotes app - CBT App to Help You Feel Better

Thought this might be helpful for those with mood problems.

Ustwo’s mood-tracking joint venture is based on cognitive behavioural therapy principles, aiming to help people understand their highs and lows

The UK-based studio is releasing an app called Moodnotes for people to track their moods and develop “healthier thinking habits”, as part of a joint venture with US developer Thriveport.

The £2.99 app, released initially for iPhone, is based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) principles, with its developers hoping it will appeal beyond people diagnosed with depression and similar conditions.

Erhardt suggested that only 20%-30% of the people who could benefit from psychotherapy actually receive it, and hopes that apps like Moodnotes can appeal to a proportion of the 80%-90% who do not.

Is it free? Will it blend?

This is actually a pretty good idea. I’m not diagnosed with any mood issues, but I suspect that They might either be developing or have been there all along and just over shadowed by the chaos illness.

It says it’s £2.99.

Great find - thanks for posting. I’m going to check it out. Seems like something that would be great for a lot of people, and their family members.
