MIND Emoodji App
 is a mobile app created by Mind for students, to help them stay mentally well while coping with the pressures of university.

Emoodji allows you to quickly and easily share how you’re feeling with close friends. Take a selfie or a photo, attach a relevant emoji to it and send it to your friends or keep it for your own feed.

Using an emoji allows you to capture and share your emotion quickly, whether you’re at a particularly high or low moment in your university life. You can then respond to friends and support each other.

Emoodji also tracks your mood, giving you a snapshot of how things have been going for you over the past week and month. It then offers you tips on aspects of university life that might be having an impact, from dealing with coursework, coping with Freshers Week or improving your sleep.

Whether you’re feeling good or feeling the pressure, Emoodji helps you look after your feelings and provides helpful tips on how to stay mentally healthy at university.
