What is Depressed Mood?
Need some information on Depressed Mood? Watching this short video is a good place to start.
rTribe aims to help users change habits and addictions. Through messaging and video chats, the users can connect with communities for peer support or licensed professional counselors and certified coaches. Users start by outlining behaviors that they would like to change, and can “check-in” in a journal format by logging their mood and the status of their habit-change. This information can then be viewed over time in a graph. Users can specify when they are feeling “triggered” which sends a notification to their network requesting to chat. Users can “level up” based on their number of consecutive days without unwanted behaviors, and can also access several educational resources.
