The EcoWeb project has recruited more than 1600 participants across four countries despite COVID-19

Since the EcoWeB project launched MyMoodCoach (an app powered by Monsenso) in November 2020 it has recruited more than 1600 young participants in Belgium, UK, Spain and Germany.

The EcoWeB research study, led by Professor Ed Watkins University of Exeter, seeks to understand what influences mood, how emotions change over time, and which emotional skills increase well-being among youth.

The participants are asked to use MyMoodCoach to monitor their emotions in daily life, while giving them access to “Tools” and “Challenges” to boost their mental health and wellbeing. ‘Tools’ provide the participants with strategies to help them if they feel sad, stressed, anxious or have a problem. ‘Challenges’ help them to learn new skills, develop a positive mindset, improve their confidence and gain insight into their emotions.

The strong pick up of MyMoodCoach reflects a desire among youth to take better care of their mental wellbeing.

“We are very pleased to contribute to this project, as young people have been particularly impacted by COVID-19.” says Thomas Lethenborg, CEO of Monsenso. “Mobile health solutions have proved true value during the pandemic, allowing both clinical practice and important research projects to continue despite lockdowns.”
