20% IMPROVEMENT

MoodHelper was created by researchers at Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health Research and tested among many adult participants over the period of 15 years.

Results show that consistent MoodHelper users on average usually have about 20% more improvement in their depression symptoms than people who don't use the program. We have also found this benefit among people who are also getting traditional depression treatment such as taking medication or seeing a counselor.

MoodHelper works equally well for men, women and for a variety of people from all walks of life. It's self-guided, costs much less than interventions that require direct contact with therapists, and useful for large groups like employees or college students.
