Revolutionized my mental health.

Hopeless Wanderer

Having an animated buddy hold you accountable is a lot more helpful than I'd expected at first. Through this app I've learned to be kinder, more patient, and more understanding to/with myself. I know more about myself and my symptoms; I know many more coping strategies and am able to locate them and remember them if I need. The app reminds me to take my medicine every day and I love that you can add your own calendar events to customize the app. The daily tasks to wake up the buddy are so helpful too; they remind me to slow down and take stock of my life before I go about my day.
I think that, while the app may be aimed at younger folks, it is incredibly helpful for people of all ages. I'm far beyond a teen and I love this app and recommend it to the people in my life who may need it.
Thank you.

Super helpful, few suggestions!


I love this app, and my therapist definitely approved of it and loved the idea. Help is so easily accessible since we usually have our phones on us at all times. I love the crisis mode, thay could save so many people. The “buddies” are so cute and I love doing the tasks to help wake them up! My favorite feature is where you choose what’s wrong and there’s many of options on how to help or cope with the emotions you’re feeling. My suggestion is also make a negative self talk tab. Lot’s of the time I’m down because of self confidence issues and it’s be helpful to include
tips on how to feel better about myself. I also wish for a tab on help with eating disorders. I hope you guys take these suggestions into mind. Thank you for helping me through many hard days!

Incredibly useful


This app was a gift from someone important to me and I didn’t know how useful it would be but it is very effective at giving me a purpose and pushing me but also letting me have space when I need it with the,” give me another quest,” option. The only thing I feel like this is missing is a few more checkin buttons. They mention them in the symptom selection, and I get manically high moods very rarely but I would LOVE an option that says, “I’m really emotionally high and I’m taking risks and am irritable,” or something because, “good,” isn’t really accurate to look back on.
Also a few more customization options wouldn’t go amiss, maybe one or two more per level but that’s a nitpick. Great work all in all and I recommend this app!
