Apps, Software In Development To Help Monitor Mental Health

On the front of its Marketplace section, the Wall Street Journal (1/6, B1, Walker, Subscription Publication) reports on new technology, including smartphone apps and software designed to analyze voices to help treat people with mental health disorders or to determine when depression may be interfering with treatment compliance for another medical condition, such as diabetes or heart disease. Recently, the National Institutes of Health awarded investigators at the Harvard School of Public Health some $2.42 million for the development of an app that will help track patterns of sleep in people with mental health issues.
