With the continuous efforts of healthcare providers, researchers, and public health advocates, the awareness around mental well-being is growing. Finally! However, the lack of time and stigma around mental health are barriers to seeking traditional help. Thankfully, new technologies are being introduced to fill these gaps.
Noom is a digital health company helping people lead healthier lives through a combination of psychology, technology, and human coaching. The company has announced the launch of a new stress management product: Noom Mood.
Noom Mood is a digital program that helps users understand the why behind their stress and manage the root cause for ideal relief. It provides accessibility and support in one digital platform and offers research-based, well-tested tools to manage stress.
Key features of this stress management tool include:
- Short, 10-min fun-activity-based lessons delivered daily to the user. The lessons are easy to add to your schedule and are based on psychological concepts like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance Commitment Theory (ACT).
- Quick tools and techniques based on mindfulness to reduce stress
- Social support, guidance, and empathy from a human coach
- Mood measures and progress over time
Noom Mood promises more joy and less stress. It is developed on the concept that managing daily stress is a journey. Having an easy to use program installed on their smartphones, users feel more confident in seeking help for stress management, therefore, preventing health consequences of prolonged stress.
Note that Noom Mood is not a replacement for therapy and does not offer any treatment plans.
