Facebook app to monitor mental health: Monash Alfred Psychiatry research centre

Researchers are looking at how social media can be used to prevent relapse in a person living with mental illness. The world-first pilot study will use a Facebook app to look at changes in a person’s social media interactions to predict when a person living with a mental illness is likely to experience a relapse. Professor Paul Fitzgerald, Deputy Director of the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Centre (MAPrc), said social media had the potential to be a life-saving way to prevent relapse for patients with bipolar disorder, a substantial clinical problem.
