World Mental Health Day, 2022

Daniel and I plan to build a big team of great people to support us at TelemetryDeck in the future. Right now there are four of us, and already we are implementing one of our long term goals: Mental health always comes first. We believe that our business should serve the well-being of our employees and customers, not the other way around. We also take a lot of care to be mindful of each other's mental health in our team meetings.

Furthermore, we also see this strategy as part of our brand message, which is why we are participating in this year's Mental Health Day, which takes place every year on October 10. This year’s theme, brought to you by the WHO, is to make mental health & well-being for all a global priority.

Shoutout to Awesome App Developers

To mark the occasion, we reached out to our community to find apps that help maintain or improve mental health. Here come our favorites:

Brainmirror Helps You Find a Solution

Brainmirror

The app invites a person to answer a simple question—how do you feel on a scale from 0 to 10. Our lives are full of emotions and interactions, and sometimes it can really help to ask yourself, “how do I feel.” Brainmirror was designed to be simple, without barriers and interruptions. You also don't need to worry about your personal information—you don't need an account, and your journal is never uploaded or shared.

Moody Helps You Keep Track of Your Well-Beeing

Moody - My Mood Diary

Moody was developed as a support for people with depression. The app helps you record your daily mood. This can help you better understand the connection between events and symptoms of depression.

EMDR Helps You Treat PTSD

EMDR

EMDR therapy is an exceptionally effective treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The EMDR app is a research-based toolkit for licensed EMDR therapists to support them in their practice. It offers instruments that assume the bilateral stimulation (BLS) model of EMDR, as well as instruments that assume the mental workload model of EMDR.

A Statement From the Founders of TelemetryDeck

We would like to call on our community to take the topic of mental health seriously. This includes being mindful of ourselves and others. At the same time, we should not forget that not all problems can be solved at the individual level. Structural issues need to be addressed structurally. “The treatment gap for mental health conditions has widened,” writes the WHO on its website. And this is what we are observing as well.

Please use your voice, your reach, and your energy today and every other day to advocate for appropriate treatment for people with mental illness. We can only overcome stigma and poor care as a community.
