Optimism 1.0 unveiled

Crackatonic Projects has released Optimism 1.0, a health-wellness planning application that takes a pro-active approach to dealing with mental health. Optimism works by helping users monitor patterns in their lifestyle such as a person's mood, exercise, sleep, and other potential triggers, symptoms or activities that may trigger depression. The program requires Mac OS X Version 10.2 or higher and runs as a Universal Binary for both Intel and PowerPC processors. Optimism 1.0 costs $19.95 and is available as a full-featured 7-day trial.

The application analyzes these relationships and displays charts to visually uncover various cause and effect relationships that may trigger episodes of mental illness. Users can then develop a "Stay Well Plan" to develop strategies for managing mental illness and staying healthy. Optimism's Plan, Charts, and Reports can be stored and emailed in PDF format for health professionals to monitor.
