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.
