The SARDAA Health Storylines app is an illness management product for people with schizophrenia. It was developed by The Schizophrenia and Related Disorders Association of America (SARDAA), which is a nonprofit advocacy group. The app has a variety of tools aimed to help improve self-monitoring and control of symptoms. There are five sections each designed to track: medications, mood, vital signs, symptoms and appointments. Additionally, there is a journal which provides a space for the user to reflect on their condition, record accomplishments, list items of gratitude, etc. There are also Tool Sections designed to collect and organize questions for health care providers, provide general information regarding schizophrenia, and to provide guidance on when to contact others for help. Each month more Tools are added to the Tool Library. Finally, there is an option to add family and friends to the “Circle of Support”, this would allow them to provide support and encouragement.
