Depression is the most common psychiatric illness, and remains a challenge to treat because of its strong socio-economic impact, risk of chronicity, recurrence and cognitive disorders.

In the context of decreasing medical demographics and limited access to validated psychotherapies, a mobile application in French called Bloom-up attempts to provide out-patients with information, auto-evaluation, cognitive-behavior tools (cognitive restructuring, behavioral task, mindful meditation) and cognitive remediation.
