CG SUPRT has launched a new mobile, self-management intervention based in CBT and Positive Psychology that can help CG SUPRT eligible members track, understand, and improve their mood, and become more resilient. It is available at any time, on any smart phone, tablet, and desktop. HOW IT WORKS: MoodHacker encourages self-management through a practical, real-life, and holistic intervention approach. Healthy habits that encourage physical activity, sleep, nutrition, and social support are woven into the user experience. Knowing which activities affect us in a positive way helps us plan healthier, happier days. The app is used daily to rate mood, chart positive activities, and keep personal notes on what was motivating or challenging. Then users can view 7-day and 30-day charts to see what's working and what can be improved. Personalized messages guide users on a proven intervention pathway and relevant feedback about what is working encourages users to stay on track. Helpful resources incorporated within the app, such as animated videos and articles, communicate key points. MoodHacker is available to USCG Active Duty members, civilian employees, members of the Selected Reserve, and their family members. Services are free and confidential within the limits of the law. To get started, click on the link to "On-Demand, Personalized Resilience Building" on the CG SUPRT homepage. FEEL BETTER The CG SUPRT Program is free and confidential within the limits of the law. It is also easy to access. Help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year— at 855-CG SUPRT (855-247-8778) or online at
