mHealth for Mental Health

Technology is redefining how we study, assess, and treat mental illnesses. Mobile health (mHealth) now enables us to bring cutting edge treatments out of the clinics and research centers and into the hands of the people who need them most.

Led by Dror Ben-Zeev, PhD, the mHealth for Mental Health program is dedicated to the development and testing of innovative mHealth approaches that are designed for real-world clinical populations, experiencing real-world challenges, in real-world environments. He and his team work closely with patients, practitioners, and healthcare organizations to create and study novel mHealth technologies as well as innovative methods for using existing technology to enhance mental health.

Sample research projects include:
  • Patient Centered Research: Comparing mHealth and Face-to-Face Care
  • Mobile Behavioral Sensing for Relapse Prevention in Schizophrenia
  • The Making of an Audio-Video Smartphone App for Psychosis
  • Using Facebook to Reach People Who Hear Voices
  • Development of FOCUS: A Smartphone System for Serious Mental Illness
  • Identifying Predictors of Violence in Hospitalized Patients
