Joy – Mental
Health Monitor

Joy is a Facebook messenger app that monitors and tracks your mental health. Operated through Facebook messenger, Joy sends daily check-ins, asking how you feel and what you did that day. Joy then uses your response to interpret your mood and respond appropriately. Danny Freed, creator of Joy, hopes that this app plays a role in shattering the stigma against mental health by normalizing open communication.

NorthPointe developed the SOARR program with the belief that individual paths to recovery differ, and supportive services for mental and behavioral health disorders should be tailored to fit each individual’s needs and be offered in their local neighborhoods and communities.
