moodgym is designed to be used by people who would like to prevent mental health problems or manage problems which are troubling but not incapacitating.

moodgym is an online self-help program designed to help users prevent and manage symptoms of depression and anxiety. It is like an interactive, online self-help book which teaches skills based on cognitive behaviour therapy. 

moodgym consists of five interactive modules which are completed in order. Each module takes 20-40 minutes to complete. As you progress through moodgym, you will be asked to answer questions about your feelings and thoughts. moodgym will then provide useful feedback about your results. At the end of each module, a summary of your results for that module is available and can be printed out. These can also be accessed from your Workbook. In the moodgym Workbook you’ll find all of the exercises and quizzes that you encounter throughout the program.
