This week marks my one year anniversary with Mood 24/7, and today Mood 24/7 was featured on a Kansas Public Radio piece called: A New Way to Track Mood Changes. Perfect timing. Bryan Thompson, who is the Health Reporter at KPR, interviewed Dr. Adam Kaplin (Mood 24/7’s inventor) Dr. April Foreman (A Mood 24/7 Early Adopter), a Mood 24/7 member, and me, to give a full account of how Mood 24/7 revolutionizes healthcare for people suffering from mental injury or illness.

Mood 24/7 Year In Review
I also figured that this would be as good a place as any to take some time and reflect on last year’s journey. In one year, a small but agile team within HealthCentral has: completely overhauled the look and feel of the Mood 24/7 experience, added the ability to provide updates directly on the website and from E-mail as well as text message, and added features like Daily Averages and Member Sorting for Health Professionals.
These upgrades ultimately led to the quadrupling of Mood/7’s Monthly Active User (MAU) base, with an average of 70% of our active users responding to texts on a daily basis. We’ve also reduced our monthly churn by 12% and 35% of our membership journals with the service on top of providing numerical daily mood ratings. Mood 24/7 is open to the public and free for general use, and we’re currently being used within multiple organizations inside of Johns Hopkins University, within two American College Counselor’s Association campus Counseling Centers and in a rural Community Mental Health organization in Coffeyville, KS.
It’s been an awesome ride so far, and I’m very grateful and fortunate to be a part of this effort that both helps people and helps save lives.
