Developing an open-source toolkit for measuring mental health in large established organisations

Lead DIGIT Lab Academics: Dr David Plans & Dr Jonathan Bird

This project aims to develop a smartphone application that can be used to effectively monitor the mental health of large workforces. The application will prompt users to complete a series of valid and reliable mental health inventories. Additionally, the application draws upon sensor data that is available in modern smartphones to offer a series of tasks that provide a more objective measure of mental health.

The application is currently under active development and the research team will be conducting pilot trials with large established organisations in the near future.
