UC-Davis Tests Mobile App Aimed at Detecting Early Signs of Severe Mental Illness Among Youth
A UC-Davis clinic is studying how a smartphone application called Ginger.io could help detect early signs of severe mental illness in young individuals. The app gathers information on incoming phone calls and text messages while allowing users to input symptoms on a daily and weekly basis. The project is funded by a one-year, $588,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
