What’s Up is an app designed to provide helpful tools for managing depression. The app is based on principles of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and includes multiple features: education about common thinking errors and various healthier alternatives; breathing techniques for relaxation; a guided grounding exercise; a log for tracking “good” and “bad” habits; a personal diary for recording thoughts and rating feelings; a “Catastrophe Scale” for gaining perspective on problems; open forums for discussion with other users; and a selection of positive quotes and other motivational material. Users can also protect their data with a passcode. What’s Up does not have options for sharing data or otherwise including mental health providers in the app, but it may be a useful aid for individuals with mild-moderate depression who do not have access to traditional treatments.
