Some of the world’s leading digital mental health experts at Flinders University have developed a personalised mental health tool on your mobile phone.
The app is the first of its kind, gathering data and information, providing feedback, motivational messaging and interventions and responding to the changing mental health circumstances of individuals.
Developed by Associate Professor Niranjan Bidargaddi, the app aims to support people with severe mental illness to live better lives and receive appropriate support in the community by providing intervention and reducing the risk of their mental health issues deteriorating.
This amazing technology has been developed – but your help is now needed to trial its use across South Australia in a world-first study.
Researchers also have plans for a second stage of the project, which would connect all clinicians to their patients via the app. This has incredible potential to reduce mental health deterioration and hospital admissions.
