New App Detects Anxiety and Mood Disorders in Teens

New App Detects Anxiety and Mood Disorders in Teens

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

A phone rings in the middle of the night, an anxious teen seeking guidance from a friend. Is it adolescent angst or a serious mental health problem?

That’s why Rutgers researchers have developed a smartphone app designed to monitor and evaluate moods and activities in real-time, allowing clinicians, school officials and parents to intervene should a child need help.

The app, piloted in a small study of middle school students, started as a joint project of Rutgers' Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP) and the university's Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB), a research center focused on wireless technology, and has expanded to include additional academic and industry partners.
