8th May 2013 - Newspapers report Emotion Sensing Phone App


On 8th May 2013 The Daily Mirror (and many other newspapers) reported a free phone app that tracked a person’s mood and that could be used as a pocket therapist. The app Emotion Sense tracked calls and texting patterns and conversations to work out how the user was feeling. It was part of a research project running from  2011-2016.

Mobile phone apps are often being created and evolving. There are a large number of mental health apps now available. For example Moodpath gives a mental health assessment, to track and reflect on your mood, and gives help to escape from negative thoughts and overwhelming emotions. What's Up? uses CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) methods to help users cope with Depression, Anxiety, Anger, and Stress. Daylio is a Diary, Journal, Mood Tracker. There are lots more,

Thankyou to Mental Health Forum for the date. The report is from the Daily Mirror
