Our New Paper on Smartphone Mental Health Apps


The current edition of the British Journal of Psychiatry Bulletin is a special technology issue looking at a range of technology and informatics issues including the use of Facebook, YouTube and Google by doctors as well as a broader debate on whether doctors should use online information*.


Our new paper on smartphone mental health apps is also featured in this technology issue where we provide a broad overview of mental health apps as well as some of the challenges which include regulation. Although we discuss smartphone apps, the principles can also be applied to tablets and smartwatches.
