Mobile Phone and Internet-Based Intervention for Depression (Mobilyze!)

The Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies (CBITs) is developing and testing a mobile phone intervention that utilizes multiple methods of communication to provide care for depression and can continuously connect to, collect data from, and reach out to the adult patient. CBITs is developing a system that interprets and determines the patient's location, activity, social context, mood and aims to provide skills that may help individuals with depression. The Center's model proposes that adherence and efficacy can be enhanced by increasing support from humans, creating greater connectedness to patients in their environments, and developing new interfaces that are more conducive to promoting complex behavior change.
