[Perspectives] Digitising the mind

An estimated 29% of people will experience a mental disorder at least once in their lifetime. In high-income nations, about 55% of those affected will not receive the care they need, with that figure increasing to an estimated 85% for people living in developing countries. There is a global unmet need in the assessment and treatment of mental health disorders, an issue digital medicine can help to address. Thanks to a wide range of digital technologies now available, multidimensional assessments of mood and biometrics related to mental health are possible for those with and without mental health concerns.
