Depression is something that millions of Americans suffer from every single day. In fact, there are an estimated one in 15 adults that experience at least 1 major depressive episode in any given year. Depression knows no boundaries. It can affect anyone. I know this first hand as I have seen many of my friends and family suffer from it. One of the things that I’ve noticed about depression is that it can make the person feel alone or like they’re the only one going through this. But I promise you, you’re not alone. There are many different options that can help as you get back on the right track of feeling like yourself again. I’d like to introduce you to one of those options today. It’s called the Moodivator app.
The Moodivator app is a free mobile app developed by Pfizer. This new app was made to help people with depression take a more active role in managing their condition. You do this by following the simple features included in the app such as goal setting, mood tracking and even sharing your results with your care team. The app is super easy to set up and navigate which is good because depression can sometimes make even the smallest task seem impossible.
While I don’t specifically suffer from depression, I do find myself getting down at times. With a new baby it can be overwhelming and it definitely helps to have goals and routines. That is what gets me through and keeps me upbeat. I love the idea of having an app that helps motivate people with depression and allow them to take a more active role in their treatment. Almost everyone uses their phone so having access to new tools that help people manage their depression is really going to help a lot of people. I also wanted to mention one of my favorite parts about this app. When you download Moodivator to your iPhone you wil periodically receive encouraging, inspirational messages that help to motivate you along the way. Sometimes just the smallest things can make the biggest difference in your day. For more information on Moodivator check out this video. And you can dowload the app for free to your iPhone from the Apple App Store.
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.
