New app to help treat mental disorders
Mental disorders include depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other psychoses, dementia and developmental disorders, including autism. The burden of mental disorders continues to grow with significant impacts on health. Treatments for mental disorder work and suicide attempts are partly preventable with proper and real-time monitoring. In this context, the EU-funded MindCare project will develop a smartphone app that gathers data about the patient through a wearable device. The data is then transformed into interpretable information so that doctors and caregivers can intervene. The overall aim of this app is to improve quality of care and step up recovery as well as reduce hospitalisation. Most importantly, it empowers patients for better self-management.
