Health diary software to monitor your mental health.

Overview

Optimism is a mood chart app that helps you develop strategies to manage depression, bipolar or other physical and mental health conditions.

It can be customized completely to suit your specific circumstances, making it relevant to any health condition that affects (or is affected by) mood.

Optimism helps you to:

  • Monitor and develop strategies, specific to yourself, that help you remain in good health.
  • Grow in your understanding of "triggers" that affect you, and the early warning signs or symptoms of a decline in mental health.
  • Find concrete starting points for discovering interactions between the factors that affect you. Charts and reports form a feedback loop, which helps you detect these interactions more easily.
  • Develop a wellness plan that documents your strategies and appropriate steps in the event of illness. It can be easily and regularly updated as self-understanding increases.
Optimism provides good integration with health providers, with detailed histories that can be reviewed quickly. It is grounded in preventative health and early intervention for better health outcomes.

What's new in Optimism

Version 3.8.4:
  • Includes a bug fix to prevent crashing after a password is entered.

Most helpful

As a combat veteran I find Optimism helpful in dealing with my PTSD. It is simple, easy to use, and I can print out reports of how things went since my last Drs. visit that help us both in terms of my therapy, and adjustments made in it. In others words, it just works as it is supposed to. The price is reasonable, and its interface is mac-like. I have found it a valuable tool and recommend it.

v3.8.4 (still) crashes upon launch under Lion 10.7.4. Developer, while very responsive, pleads me wait to for the next one. App still tries to install background monitors I really do not wish to have happening without my permission. What to say? A unique, well designed application hobbled by lack of ongoing support and continued subterfuge.

v3.8.2 crashes upon launch under OS X Lion 10.7.2. Developer has been notified, and has identified a point of failure. Too soon to see whether that will result in a version upgrade or a silent fix.

WARNING: this app tries its best to install a background startup application called "Optimism Agent" into your System. I suspect this enables its scheduling and web synching features. Call me paranoid, but I consider this an outrageous abuse of my licensing fee.

Early Review, will add more later I am on disability for depression. I have only been using this software for a few days, and I can tell already that it will be invaluable for understanding the factors that can help treat my depression and lead to a healthier lifestyle. The program is very easy to use, yet is very powerful and flexible. There is also an area for daily notes and short and long term goals. The program produces impressive graphs. I haven't used it long enough to understand how they will be helpful but obviously it helps identify trends in a visual way. The program also has good reporting features. Two thumbs up and 5 stars!

good app but would suggest two things: 1. iPhone app so you can track and enter data when not at home 2. Long term reports for more then 64 days 3. More options to customise and show stats you need i.e disable medication etc

I had purchased the application in its very early days and have seen constant improvements, each one enhancing the experience of using the software and making it even more of a pleasure to use. You really have to try it for yourself too see if you can benefit from it. I use this application to track my ups and downs which it displays in a graphical view. As for Support well it is excellent. From general questions to lost license keys, james bishop has been quick to help & resolve on all the issues i have emailed about. *****Highly Recommended*****

Damn, I wish this were a tad readier for prime time. Like asking $29.95 for an app with zero documentation? And it sure looks like something's a bit crippled until you do pay. All this needs to be made clear if you wanna play with the big boys. Pretty, though.

Great application for what its made for...Works great and helps to keep organized and track the possible unwanted triggers much easier than with tons of papers...no problems at all..

Why is the app a folder instead of a real application? It seems weird. The app itself is good though. Though I think 29$ is a bit too much in these early stages of development. In the future it might be $29 worth. Keep up the good work developer;-)
