Western Sydney to trial wearable device intervention for youth mental health

The Western Sydney Local Health District plans to trial the use of wearable devices monitored by clinicians to improve the care of young people with severe mental illnesses.

The unWired project will see FitBit-like personal wearable devices used by young people to measure their activity and level of stress, with data sent back to the wearer and their treating clinician through a purpose-built app.
