girl-on-stairs-857597-m

Tracking your mood over time can be a very helpful way to monitor your mental health, especially if you are struggling with depression. It’s important to identify patterns in your moods and to know when to reach out for more help when you notice depression symptoms increasing. People often don’t realize the severity of symptoms of depression until it becomes difficult to manage. In the U.S., 25% of the population suffers from a mood disorder and can often make people feel that they are isolated and alone.
