Ideas for a new health app

Alert mental health sufferers & carers to a possible episode.

Use software in mobile phone system to track changes in a client's

- tone of voice,

- regularity and speed of calling and texting,

- even vocabulary usage,

and thus recognise when their thought patterns are becoming abnormal, e.g. they may be entering a depressed ('flat'), anxious, angry, manic or psychotic phase.


Then use this information to

(a) alert the client, giving valuable self-awareness (e.g to take pre-emptive meds), and/or

(b) automatically alert (e.g. text) family or other carers, and/or

(c) trigger another device, worn by the client, to automatically administer treatment (words, music, meds, deep brain stimulation).
