    Depression CBT Self-Help Guide's review

    Published: 2013-11-18, by .

    Learn to control the stress that contributes to depression

    • Many tools to help you understand and conquer depression
    • Can password protect your data
    • Downright ugly design
    • Difficult to use

    "Don't worry, be happy. Maybe."

    Bummed out beyond belief? There's an app for that. Excel At Life's Depression CBT Self-Help Guide contains approximately a zillion tools to help you out of your depression, or at least to understand it better.

    The app includes a screening test plus graph to check the severity of your mood swings, many articles regarding clinical depression and cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT), loads of suggestions to help you motivate yourself, Depression Assistance Audio to help you better understand the condition, and a Cognitive Thought Diary for challenging stressful thinking.

    Unfortunately, the design of the app is highly disorganized, and plenty of it downright ugly. The chipper pink and purple scheme does nothing to help out someone already down on themselves, and it's difficult to use to boot.

    Excel At Life's Depression CBT Self-Help Guide is a nice idea, but needs to be put in a more attractive shell in order to be truly useful.

    Absolutely brilliant. Have just started using this app and has really put things into perspective for me. Has helped me understand a lot of my issues and how I need to think. So glad I found this.

    The app provides an audio feature which is really effective. Just one thing, please provide new updates towards more such audios and videos for better user experience.

    It didn't explain anything so I deleted it.
