What is digital behavior?
It's anything that a person does online without monitoring content. What devices you use, the apps you open, and how long you interact with your mobile. We do not collect any identifiable information. Behavidence was designed with total privacy in mind.
How does Behavidence differ from other mental health apps?
I. We are not a therapy or treatment app. In fact, the MHSS can be used as a measurement tool to see how well the other mental health apps perform. We recommend you keep track of your MHSS when using other apps to get a sense if they are really working for you. We are purely an unbiased metric.
II. There's no user burden. Meaning to get a MHSS all you need to do is install the app, use your phone as usual and check your score daily.
What to do with my Mental Health Similarity Score?
Your score is meant to help you create a plan or path. To give you an indication of what’s happening with you.
For example, there are days we all feel exhausted and don’t know why. But if we listed all the things we did on that day - it would make sense.
Remember this is not a diagnostic tool! It’s insight about how your digital behaviour compares to other people with ADHD, Depression and Anxiety.
What is a Mental Health Similarity Score?
It’s a measure of how alike two examples are based on data. Your similarity score shows you how closely your digital behavior is like other people with ADHD, Depression or Anxiety. Our algorithm calculates a score based on how you interact with your mobile.
For example, if your similarity score is 25% for ADHD. Then it means 25% your digital behaviour is similar to the digital behavior of people with ADHD.
Can you get all of that from my mobile?
Yes. Mobiles have become a central tool in life. Studies show they’re the #1necessity in our lives. So, how you use this essential tool can give value insight.
What’s the significance of the thumbs up or down on my score?
When you check thumbs up, or thumbs down it lets us know if you agree or disagree with the MHSS you are seeing.
Why it’s important
