Saying When, a mobile application developed by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, helps users identify problem drinking behaviours, set personal goals and track their progress using their smartphone.

"It endorses the possibility that people want to take responsibility," said Wayne Skinner, deputy clinical director for the centre. "This is a way of helping people set their goals and give them feedback."

In addition to helping users track their alcohol intake, the app outlines low-risk drinking guidelines and has links to outside resources. Saying When sells for $1.99 on iTunes and has been downloaded approximately 300 times since launching in early June.
