WellTrack provides confidential self-guided tools and resources to help manage stress, anxiety and depression. MoodCheck, WellTrack's companion mobile app (Android and Apple), is a mindfulness daily mood tracker, which will ask you to record how you are feeling a couple times a day. It will track your moods and activities over time showing you the trends between low and high moods, a critical component to improving overall mental wellness. WellTrack is great way to integrate mental health into your busy daily life without hassle. Consider it a "FitBit" for mental health.
MindWellU delivers evidence-based, multilingual mindfulness e-training that has been shown to lower stress, increase resilience, and improve performance. MWU allows you to take a 30-day Mindfulness Challenge in which you are prompted to take 5-10 minutes per day to engage in a different Mindfulness exercise. You can even invite a buddy of your choice to do the challenge with you! This is a great way to start a mindfulness practice in a manageable way from your smartphone, and without a big-time commitment.
