Effectiveness of EarlyDetect, a psychiatric assessment program, using a mobile APP interface
Mental health illness cost over $50 billion in the Canadian economy annually, and is prevalent at workplace. The cost and prevalence of menial health illness can be greatly mitigated with early detection and intervention. EarlyDetect is a program developed by Chokka Center for Integrative Health for convenient, accurate and reliable self-assessment of mental illness, and has been validated in a pen-and-paper form. The current project is to develop a fully functional mobile APP version of the EarlyDetect, and to study whether testing through a mobile APP will generate the same high quality diagnosis from the pen-and-paper version of the program.
