Its been a busy old period at ustwo, and the fruits of all that labour seem to be coming to fruition!
Moodnotes is the first of such projects, in which I had the pleasure of filming the process the team went through, as well as touch on the science underneath the hood.
As Drew mentions in the film, depression is predicted to become the number 1 cause of disability in the world, which is absolutely staggering. At ustwo, we wanted to find a way to work with experts in psychology to see if we could make use of our skills in digital products to bring something to market that could really help people. The result is a mood journal that leverages one of the most widely used practises in psychology (CBT) to deal with mental health issues, namely anxiety and depression.
For my part, I was asked to head to LA and interview the 2 Psychologists as well as the Product Lead at ustwo and the process the 2 parties went through. It was an amazing whirlwind trip for a very worth cause. If this film does nothing more than raise awareness of mental health issues, then I’ll be over the moon.
I hope you find it interesting!
