If you're dealing with emotional trauma or disorder, keeping watch over your progress is essential. If you use it every day, the T2 Mood Tracker app will track your emotional experience over time, which can be invaluable data when speaking with your health care provider.
Use criteria sliders to rate your daily experience. For example, when dealing with stress - are you feeling more withdrawn or social? More restless or peaceful? That they're sliders instead of arbitrary numbers helps greatly in terms of translating intangible feelings into tangible data.
The app includes six issues already loaded: anxiety, depression, general well-being, head injury, post-traumatic stress, and stress. If you'd like to track something else, it's easy to design your own customized scale with personalized criteria sliders.
You can make notes regarding the day's events if you'd like to see if there's any correlation with your mood, and easily export this data to share with your doctor if you like.
The app isn't beautiful, but it doesn't need to be - the usefulness for anyone wanting to track their mood over time more than makes up for anything it's lacking aesthetically.
T2 Mood Tracker was developed by the National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2), the U.S. Defense Department’s primary technological agency regarding issues of psychological health and traumatic brain injury.

Mood Tracker allows users to monitor their moods on six pre-loaded scales (anxiety, stress, depression, brain injury, post-traumatic stress, general well-being). Custom scales can also be built. Users rate their moods by swiping a small bar to the left or to the right. The ratings are displayed on graphs to help users track their moods over time. Notes can be recorded to document daily events, medication changes and treatments that may be associated with mood changes, providing accurate information to help health care providers make treatment decisions.
