As part of a program to promote youth mental health, an application for Android and iOS (Apple) has been developed. "Mindyourmood" allows users to note their moods and emotions, which can facilitate intervention during a meeting with a specialist.

The tool allows young people (adults too have the right to use it!) To quickly record how they are feeling - day to day or hourly. “App users can express their feelings and discuss it with their caregiver - whether their therapist, doctor, parent or peer - creating a common language conducive to exchanges and more positive results ”, explains one in the press release of AstraZeneca, the Canadian pharmaceutical company which supported the development.

The application " mindyourmood Was designed by and for young people using their own language. There are seven categories of mood, each associated with four mood terms chosen by young people, ranging from energized to quiet, from feeling empty to nervousness, from anger to fatigue. Short advice is given to help young people to better experience their emotions. A tab allows you to display a report showing the frequency of each state of mind in a bar graph, providing a good general picture. A journal also details each entry.

Available only in English, the application mindyourmood can be downloaded to any Apple or Android mobile device from: http://mindyourmind.ca/toolbox/mobile-apps
(A QR code reader is required on the device.)

mindyourmood is offered as part of the initiative mindyourmind, a not-for-profit mental health program that engages adolescents and young adults, and the professionals who serve them, to jointly develop reliable and relevant resources. These resources are intended to counter the stigma associated with mental illness and to increase access to community support services, both professional and peer-provided.
