Managing bipolar disorder is an increasingly important healthcare issue as the global prevalence of this condition grows. A widely practiced method of monitoring the course of the disorder is by mood and general mental health questionnaires. However, current mobile technology provides a potential means of monitoring the behavior of individuals and this information could be of value for recognizing changes in routine that could be indicative of an upcoming bipolar episode. This article explores the potential of utilizing geospatial information and indicators of social interaction to enable mobile psychiatry.
