Worldwide over 350 million people experience a depressive episode each year. Moodpath is designed to empower people affected, to foster self-awareness and to decrease stigma. The app was developed with scientists in the field of online therapy research and is a CE-certified medical product. It can be used by patients to support the process of psychotherapy but is made available to anyone suffering from emotional distress.
HOW IT WORKS
Moodpath will ask you 3 times a day questions concerning your emotional and physical well-being over the course of 14 days. After the screening you will receive an indication whether or not you exhibit symptoms that fall into the category of a “clinical depression” and if you are recommended to consult with a mental health professional. The information that you provide during the screening will be made available as a pdf file that you can either print out or send as e-mail to the healthcare professional of your choice. Additionally, you have access to a broad range of interactive psychoeducative modules that explain causes of depression, how you detect a depression and strategies to overcome a depression.

Ratings and Reviews
I do not recommend this app for people who might show symptoms of bipolar depression because in the three times it asks you questions a day and you are in different mood swings you answer very differently. In my experience I was already diagnosed with depression and anxiety by my psychiatrist and I got this app as a way to track my moods. Because I answered differently, the app seem to level out my moods as stable and proceeded to say that I show no symptoms of depression. That is not true and I would not use this app as a credible source. I think going to a medical health professional is best because also if you have anxiety in a similar way to me and you listen to this app with 100% seriousness, you may have more feelings of self guilt and self doubt. A common answer for me was answering Moderate as how I was feeling and when this app would send notifications in those moments where I was in a dark place I did not want to answer the questions to begin with so it did not accurately reflect my thoughts and feelings. So my advice is this is not for people that have severe mood swings because I feel like this app levels out extreme happiness and extreme sadness as normal when in reality it is still a mood disorder.
Dear JC, thank you for taking your time and writing a detailed review! You are right, at this moment, moodpath does only screen and give results for symptoms of (unipolar) depression. As for now, there is only one question asking for manic or hypomanic episodes, as they occur with bipolar disorders. As with all clinic screening assessment tools, the results do not replace a diagnosis by a mental health professional. The doctor's letter is meant to ease talking about symptoms and complaints when first getting in contact with a doctor or therapist. If you feel that the results don't accurately reflect your true emotions and symptoms, you should definitely talk to a professional in any case. As for mood tracking, your insights are very valuable! In the future, we will make it possible to add a mood any time you like, hopefully making moodpath more useful for people who experience sudden and extreme mood swings. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this! - Your Moodpath Team
Helps my counsellor and I track my mood
Recently I’ve been diagnosis MDD. It was all very hard and I had a few episodes after. When I was first diagnosed I had taken the test to see how severe the depression was, I scored 22/27 so pretty bad. Once I got the app and tracked my mood and good things were happening and now that I am slowly accepting the help I need and the support I need when I recently took it again with my counsellor because I don’t take anti-depressants I scored a 13/27 so I went down quite a lot. I know that I will never get rid of my depression. It will be with me till the day I die. But It’s very positive seeing and reassuring all the progress you make and even better when you right down what causes you to feel the way you do because when you are feeling the lowest level of very bad you know what causes it and when you are ready you can do something that causes you to have a very good day.
Since it’s in English, needs a couple tweaks
UPDATE: My original view stated that the times of notification were off. I have since seen that under “settings” you can choose notifications and enter your wake up time, and that seems to fix that problem. In my case I’d forgotten I had entered 11:00 pm as my wake up time because I work midnights; nevertheless it makes sense to me to follow the sun’s wake up time instead.
On first glance it appears this is an app specifically for Americans. It’s written in English w / US spelling.
It does come with terrific information—although I wish it at least mentioned genetic factors among the risk factors for depression. (Maybe the developers don’t think it’s a factor but most of the world does. They could at least say why they disagree with that, if so). And I do like being able to keep track of my mood. I hope they add a link to some international resources or for to those for places other than Europe.
Thank you so much for your useful feedback! We're trying our best to get the German info outta there for non-German users, but sometimes we might miss a sneaky part! It would be great if you could give us feedback on where you've encountered those German texts! We also think that genetic factors play a big role and tried to focus on those in the "Biology" chapter under "Heredity". Please let us know if you find there's information still missing here! About the time slots; they vary wildly on your wakeup time, f.ex. if your wakeup time is 6 am, you might get new time slots around 6 am (morning), 1 pm (midday) and 7 pm (evening) or so. If your wakeup time is 10 am, you might get questions around 10 am (morning), 4 pm (midday) and 10 pm (evening). If your time slots don't fit this logic at all, there might be a tech issue! Please let us know through the "Give us feedback" option in your settings (under "profile") Thanks a bunch for your help! - Your Moodpath Team
