2. Participation

People who were able to participate have been split into TWO groups. One group has got access to the MyMoodCoach app right away, the other group gets access to it after a period of 6 weeks.
We have advised participants to use the app for at least 28 days to learn what makes them happy and sad, and to build r emotional skills & wellbeing.

3. Follow up

After 6 weeks each participant was is sent a link for another survey to complete. People who were in the group that did not have access to the app are given access after this survey is complete.

After another 6 weeks everyone is asked to complete another survey and given a chance to provide some feedback about their experience of using the app.
