The average young person listens to music for up to 5 hours a day – amounts which increase during episodes of depression.
Co-developed with young people and more than 10 years of research, the ‘Moody Tunes’ smartphone app uses music to help young people understand and manage depression.
The Moody Tunes app is different to existing solutions because it engages young people through the music they love but draws on evidence-based psychological therapies that provide real assistance.
The app is easy to use, can be accessed any time, anywhere, and promotes both self-management of mental health and use of professional mental health services when needed.
While primarily developed for young people, data shows that the app is also highly appealing to older people, making it scalable to multiple settings such as workplace mental health.
