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.

  • Check-in with how you are feeling each day
  • Use coping skills
  • Keep track of appointments and medications
  • Get started on tasks
  • Follow self-care routines
  • Increase real-life socialization

BoosterBuddy 1.7 is now available!

Thanks to feedback from our app users and the generous support of Coast Capital Savings and 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.
