“Congratulations on Moodscope and its success! I have just completed my first test and am so pleased you have researched a method of self-analysis, including the buddying system, which doesn't include drug treatment! How refreshing. I really hope you can find the funding you need to achieve your aims.”

AW, Yorkshire, UK


“Can I just say I have been doing this a few days now and it is definitely helping me recognise the issues I have and what causes my anxiety.”

WB, Lancashire, UK


“Thank you for this great initiative! I really feel excited about it and the benefits I am going to get. I appreciate the thought and skill and good heartedness that has gone into it.”

AM, Berkshire, UK


“Thank you for this website I find so useful”

CR, Northants, UK


“I am a GP in the north east of UK and have been following the rise of your site with interest. My husband has written to you before about how much the site has helped him and how impressed we both are with it and the support and help that goes with it. I have already started to give my patients the site details. Your site is brilliant and easy to use. I think it is only a matter of time before primary care realise what an incredible tool you have given us! I will continue to tell all my colleagues - you are doing a great job and thanks for a great resource!”

TL, Tyne & Wear, UK


“Congratulations on the development of the Moodscope website - brilliant idea. I have already found it helpful after just a couple of weeks,particularly the facility to look back at the notes made each day thereby enabling me to recognise certain patterns of behavior which influence my mood.”

PB, London, UK


“May I add to your inbox which should certainly be overflowing with messages telling you what a honey you are. Having recently read the article in The Times, I have found my decision to leave my medication in its packet much less like skiing off piste than I had expected. instead, of reaching for pills in the morning, I switch my Apple to your Moodscope and, am at once, in good company. Thank you SOOOO much...”

JL, Cambridgeshire, UK


“Well done on this site - I am very impressed - saw the article in Times Online about it - I hope it helps many people - you should be very proud.”

RM, Belfast, UK


“I wanted to say thank you very much for creating Moodscope. I think it is a wonderful website. It is not overloaded with info and easy to use. Your blogs are inspirational.”

MS, Surrey, UK


“As a technology geek with Bipolar Disorder, I've been wondering for a while about the lack of online tools for effectively tracking and managing mood. I want to thank you for creating Moodscope.”

JR, New South Wales, Australia


“You are helping many people who are feeling very alone and troubled. It is all helping me greatly.”

MO, Norfolk, UK


“I have completed the test every day and find it extremely helpful in acknowledging my emotions, analysing why I feel that way and putting them in perspective. After a particularly bad day, it was extremely helpful to analyse just how I felt, assessing my anger, guilt etc. and then deciding which emotions were wasted and which I could change. After rationalising my emotions, I feel much better. Moodscope is a great help to me and thank you for all your work.”

AD, Kent, UK


“Moodscope is excellent - anything I can help you with please ask. It's the best system that I've ever used!”

GJ, Sussex, UK


“I've just started using your website after a friend saw a piece in the paper and told me about it for my daughter who is 20 and was diagnosed with bipolar 2 years ago. I love it! I love the daily reminders, the thoughts for the day and the whole concept. Well done on doing this, I'm sure it will be of great benefit to many people. Thank you.”

LW, Hertfordshire, UK


“Where Moodscope scores is that being able to view the history of my daily happiness (or lack of) gives me real courage when I do get down. There it is, in black and white. I get better, life gets better. Always.”

SE, Scotland


“I read the article about you and Moodscope in The Times and was intrigued so I logged onto your website to find out more. I signed up immediately because I think what you are doing is a brilliant idea. I found it very easy to use. I'm now into month 4 with you and really enjoy the graphs and the very useful comments facility. I can't imagine a day without you!! Keeep up the good work: it's really appreciated.”

RR, Hertfordshire, UK

WG, Midlands, UK


“Thanks for Moodscope -- I've been using it for about 2 months, and it's been really helpful in tracking and taking action to improve my mood. I really feel like it's helped to re-allocate control over my mood to me, rather than feeling like I'm at the mercy of whatever mood I find myself in. That's a huge benefit; I appreciate it.”

CD, Washington, USA


“I have raved about your site since I first logged on. ”

MB, Tyne & Wear, UK

“I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate Moodscope. I am having a pretty rough time right now and I think it does help me keep my mood up. It also helps a lot because it lets my buddies know how I am without them having to ask me or my telling them.”

SC, Minnesota, USA


“Finding Moodscope has had a huge impact on my life already - I've only been using it for about 2 weeks. It has really made me focus on how I am feeling & why that is. I'm already seeing a pattern in my mood and am able to attribute it to certain factors and events. You have created a truly wonderful tool - thank you!”

ST, Bedfordshire, UK


“Wish that Moodscope had been around 20 years ago, this is how long I have been suffering bouts of quite severe depression. I am now approaching 60 and with the help of a new GP and using Moodscope am really being to see the light. My family are commenting that this is the best they have seen me in years, my sons (one 28 the other 30) say it is like having the dad they had when they were in their primary school year. Thank you for creating such a wonderful support network.”

AS, Cambridgeshire, UK


“I use Moodscope and love it! ”

KV, New Jersey, USA


“A friend introduced me to Moodscope, joining is one of the best things I've done. I think a forum is a great idea. Thank you friend and thank you Moodscope.”

SL, Somerset, UK


“It's a great idea that has been simply and effectively executed, and I wish you all the best with developing it and progressing it.”

DP, London, UK


“I just wanted to write and thank you for developing such a great and useful tool as Moodscope. I've been using it for several weeks now, and I find it useful and thought-provoking. Keep up the great work!”

AH, New York, USA


“Thank you so much for creating Moodscope, which I just discovered last month. It's such a useful tool!”

AD, New Jersey, USA


“Just to let you know that I think you are doing such a good job with Moodscope. It is GENIUS! I love your little inspirational letters that come with each reminder to update one's chart. They really do cheer me up in the morning! What a wonderful idea. I really hope it takes off and more and more people join because it is working for me.”

LG, Sussex, UK


“Until 2 and a half years ago I regarded my self as relaxed, calm and balanced and able to manage my anxious side. Then something happened which has left me struggling with generalized anxiety and some panic attacks etc. However I finally feel as if I am coming out of it! I've been doing the daily Moodscope tests off and on for about 6 weeks now and this has coincided with a distinct improvement in my wellbeing. I use the word 'coincided' intentionally as I don't think it can be held entirely responsible for my improved mood but I do think it has made a significant contribution. Thanks for very much for all you are doing.”

LW, Northumberland, UK


“I want to stress that your programme isn't only for those with diagnosed conditions but can be of help to everyone. ”

KA, Cambridgeshire, UK


“Having used Moodscope for a while, it is, I firmly believe, such an important part of one's armoury against one's battle with depression. A brilliant simple and effective aid.”

MH, Yorkshire, UK


“A really useful tool... and despite the fact I have been using it for nearly a month, persistently surprises me with the results. Had a bad day Friday, and was instantly contacted by my buddies to offer their help and support.”

AD, Gloucestershire, UK


“A brilliant idea! Much better than the handwritten mood-diary I've kept with difficulty every day since 2006; and very useful to be able to intimately and accurately involve those who care for me.”

DN, Norfolk, UK


“I was one of the people that read the Times article and was intrigued so logged onto and joined Moodscope. I'm finding it very helpful. Plotting my mood on a daily basis is absolutely brilliant - adding comments as to why I feel like I do at a given time is SO useful. So this is just to say thank you!”

JB, Cheshire, UK


“I am enjoying receiving the reminders - not only to 'remind' me to log in to Moodscope, but the 'Thought for the day' is good. I enjoy logging in and seeing how well I have felt about myself and life and comparing it to the lowest periods.”

KW, Cambridgeshire, UK


“I found you through the April NYT article that mentioned Moodscope. I clicked through, and I think what you've come up with is just brilliant, truly.”

LS, Illinois, USA


“I find Moodscope really interesting and want it to be a success, not just for personal reasons, but also because I feel it may start to change the way that society thinks about mental health issues, which I think will be a really exciting development for future generations to benefit from. Obviously Moodscope is not a magic cure, but it provides a good support system and advocates an important lesson, that any recovery has to start from within. You need to be proactive and realise (even if reluctantly!) that nobody out there is going to "cure" you; that there is not some magic therapy or pill that is going to make you feel better long term; therapy and medication can definitely play a part, but at the end of the day, I think it is the way you approach things within your head that makes the difference. And Moodscope is a tool which can help people to take the first proactive steps and maintain a feeling of taking control.”

RB, Middlesex, UK


“Moodscope is deceptively simple to use but (thanks to the ingenious card-flip system) oddly impossible to lie to...”
