Manage your personal wellness journey and earn achievements as your sidekick guides you through a series of daily quests designed to establish and sustain positive habits.

BoosterBuddy 1.7 is now available!

Thanks to feedback from our app users and the generous support of the Victoria Hospitals Foundation, #BoosterBuddy is even better!

We have added new coping skills for Eating Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Persistent Pain and Urges to Self Harm.  We have also created a journal section to record general thoughts, celebrate personal effort, save favourite quotes and practice gratitude and self-compassion. Other updates include the ability to save quests for later, encouraging notes from your buddy each time you check in and more daily medication reminder slots.
