The Move Mood app is Best For You’s app of the month for April 2023.
About Move Mood
The Move Mood app supports people with depression to try tasks that might help manage their mood.
Move Mood splits everyday taks into routine, necessary, and enjoyable tasks to help you try a balanced range of supportive activities. You choose your own tasks and goals based on the things that matter to you, like physical wellbeing, relationships, education, or hobbies.
You can choose to break tasks down into smaller steps if you want to, and it’s up to you when (and how often) you aim to try things. After you’ve completed tasks, you can track how they’ve affected your mood – and note down how difficult they were.
The app based uses behavioural activation therapy, which encourages you to do things that might boost your mood. Doing these things can be difficult, but looking after ourselves, doing enjoyable things, and working towards goals is part of recovery.

About the Best For You app library
There are thousands of apps that claim to boost wellbeing, but it can be difficult to know which ones you can trust with your mental health and wellbeing.
Best For You worked with ORCHA (the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps) to create the Best For you app library. Every app in the library has been tested to make sure the information it contains is accurate – and that the app is safe and trustworthy too.
You can search the library for specific apps to see if they’ve been reviewed. You can also search by condition (for example, depression) or symptom (for example, feeling anxious) – and you can search for apps to support with specific things, for example, meditation or mindfulness. The library also has lists of top-rated apps for various topics. Find previous apps of the month on the Best For You website.
You can filter the apps shown, for example, to only show apps that will work on your device or to only show apps that are totally free.
Visit the Best For You app library and start your journey to finding apps to support your wellbeing.
