MoodCalmer is based on the principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and is designed to provide a brief, self-guided intervention for depression. The program guides users through four sessions, each lasting about 30 minutes, covering basic information about depression, new coping skills, and long-term recovery planning. Users can complete each session at their own pace, and can customize the time between sessions to ensure ample time for practicing the material. MoodCalmer also includes several widely used symptom checklists so that users can track progress and better understand their illness.
