T2 Mood Tracker is a mobile application that allows users to monitor and track emotional health. Originally developed as a tool for service members to easily record and review their behavior changes, particularly after combat deployments, it has now become very popular with many civilian users around the world. The app records a range of emotions for anxiety, depression, head injury, stress, posttraumatic stress and a user’s general well-being.

The data is saved in a graphical or spreadsheet file which can be transferred by e-mail or other wireless connection.
