Mobile apps are tools that can help you monitor many topics, such as fitness, nutrition, stress, and moods. They are often used in combination with traditional mental health outpatient therapy. Many are free, but you must own a smartphone to download the apps through the app store.
Why should you consider tracking your mood, behaviors, and thoughts? Mobile apps can:
- Help you look for triggers.
- Teach you how to problem solve.
- Keep you on the path to recovery.
- Be easy to share with your therapist or doctor.
- Help you make better decisions.
