Depression and anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in the United States and affect an estimated 40 million adults aged 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year. Most of the patients that present with depression also show signs of anxiety disorders or vice versa. Nearly one-half of those diagnosed with depression presented with an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events. The adults affected by these anxiety disorders have a predominantly high risk of developing mental health issues, making this problem particularly concerning. Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering from depression receive treatment. MindApp is a mobile application which aims to alleviate depression, improve cognitive thinking and provide medical advice from therapists, thereby improving one’s emotional well-being. MindApp’s mission is to facilitate accessible, affordable and patient-centered mental care through an enjoyable user interface that is fun, relaxing and scientifically safe. The paper is about a mobile mental health app proposal that explains MindApp’s aims to achieve MindApp mission.
