“Mobile Technology for Precision Mental Health Care”

More than any other advancement that has emerged in the past four decades, mobile technology has the potential to address the dual problems of limited clinical capacity and inadequate and untimely data in mental health care. As part of Precision Health at the University of Michigan, this project will test wearable and mobile technology as a means to reduce mental health symptoms among patients waiting for mental health care. Furthermore, data derived from mobile technology, genomics, and patient reports will be used to predict response to clinic-based treatments.
