Approximately 1 in 5 persons experience a psychiatric disorder in any given year. With such a high prevalence, research for new approaches to treatment is essential in mitigating this issue. The AIM HIGH Lab hopes to modernize treatment for mental health by utilizing passive data (e.g. unobtrusive data collected via smartphones, wearable sensors, electronic health records, digital footprints on the internet) to create personalized and adaptable evidence-based treatments. The AIM HIGH Lab hopes to further this research by doing the following:
(1) enhancing precision assessment of anxiety and depression using intensive longitudinal data
(2) conducting multimethod assessment utilizing passive sensor data from smartphones and wearable devices, and
(3) providing scalable, personalized technology-based treatments utilizing smartphones.
