A New Smartphone App – Start

what depression feels like

Depression isn’t an easily quantifiable medical disorder. Defined by moods and emotional states, it’s subjective and difficult to measure. And because of that, it’s often tough to determine whether or not medications prescribed to treat it are working as intended.

A new smartphone app called Start has been developed for people on newly prescribed antidepressants, the app is designed to track and summarize their response to the medication over time so that they can determine whether or not the medication is working.
