Depression used to be a taboo topic. “Just snap out of it,” “Can’t you just BE happy!?” These are just two examples of insensitive phrases that have been said to people suffering from depression. Now that decades of studies have been conducted and we know that depression isn’t just a state of mind, more light has been shed on the topic. Depression not only affects the person, but also their families. Speaking with your doctor about managing symptoms is vital, and there are many options to seek.
The Moodivator app helps you work with your health care provider by setting goals and recognizing triggers that may make symptoms worse. It also helps reinforce behaviors and actions that make the user feel good and partake in positive activities. Did you know that 70% of patients being treated for a mental health disorder disclosed they would use an app to monitor their mental health on a daily basis? Being that the majority of Americans have a smart phone in their hands at any given time, using an app is a great way to keep people on top of their health.
Moodivator was created by Pfizer with psychiatrists to bring users an effective app with an easy to use interface. It also helps the patient take their health into their own hands and have them take a primary role in their health. Monitoring your mood is just one feature of the app, but the ability to work on your progress with your health care provider and share the insights of the app is what makes the Moodivator app a great tool in managing your depression. You can find out more by checking out this video on how the Moodivator app works and the features it provides.
The Moodivator app is not a treatment for depression and does not take the place of your doctor’s care or advice. This app also includes information about a prescription treatment option for depression
