Poor mental health is one of the biggest public health issues of our time.
STAR helps you to build a unique, personalised view of your emotions, so that you can identify the right tools and techniques to better manage your mental health, one everyday moment at a time.
We’re used to taking care of our everyday physical health. But we often only pay attention to our mental health when things reach crisis point.
We want to change that.

STAR enables you to easily and discreetly track and quantify where, when and how the moments throughout your day imprint on your overall mental wellbeing.
It's the quantified inner self®
Log a moment to tell STAR how you're feeling & what's going on, and we'll use contextual data to record a picture of where and when you experienced this emotion.
in the moment
This shouldn't feel like a chore, so we reward every interaction with immediate feedback and support to help you there and then: whether helpful advice, some positive reinforcement,
or simply a pick-me-up.
the patterns of your emotions over time
As we build a data-rich picture of the patterns of your emotions and triggers, we'll not only help you to better understand your mental health, but empower you to proactively take control and better manage your mental health - with helpful habit changes, techniques and suggestions for how to get the most out of other connected health and wellbeing tools and services, to address your own specific needs.
Enabling you over time to manage your everyday mental health
Everyone is different and what works for one person at a particular time might not work for you. That’s ok, we will learn what works best for you and give you the right tools and habits at the right time and place.
Reach out in
a moment of need
And if things do get really bad, we'll provide a safety net. In a moment of crisis, actively reaching out for help is often beyond the capability of the person in that moment.
STAR's 'Inner Circle' feature sets up messages for specific contacts, that can be triggered at the tap of a button - as well as quick contacts for organisations like the Samaritans, so help is only one click away when you need it most.
