Inside the Research

Mobile phones and wearable physiological monitoring devices (wearable sensors) will be used to improve the prediction of short-term suicide risk among youth ages 18 to 24 who have recently been discharged from a psychiatric emergency department. Feasibility and initial predictive utility data for a multi-modal assessment model combining mobile phone and wearable sensor technology with real-time ecological momentary assessment will be obtained. Findings will be used to develop accessible methods for identifying early warning signs of suicide risk that can inform personalized interventions.
