We will test how youth wish to interact with and use this system to advance understanding of mental health.
“We are excited to create a system that supports both youth and researchers in understanding mental health management strategies,” said Dr. Lara Mangravite, president of Sage Bionetworks.
Relying on mobile phones and other connected technologies, the study will collect data from youth participants about their lived experience with mental health self-management.
This is fundamental to strengthening the science of global mental health and ensuring that the solutions are informed by specific needs,” said Dr. Pamela Collins, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, professor of global health, and director of the UW Global Mental Health Program.
The team from the University of Washington will bring their deep experience in working with people coping with mental health challenges and how connected technologies can help assess mental health.
