  • 1. CareLoop: a mobile phone system for monitoring mental health andsupporting self-managementIt’s common for service users with severe mental health problems to experience a range ofdistressing symptoms, which can change depending on levels of stress and a range of things.When these symptoms become worse it’s often hard to monitor them, it can be difficult toaccess help, and sometimes results in you having to go into hospital.This study is seeing whether you can monitor your mental health through the use oftelephones. Normally you would see a doctor, nurse or other health professional every fewweeks and they would ask you questions about how you are feeling. This means sometimesthings are forgotten. It is hoped that with a telephone system symptoms are recorded asthey are happening (like a living diary). This might it easier to discuss your thoughts andfeelings with health care workers; it might also mean that when you are becoming unwellmore support could be provided to stop you going into hospital. As part of the study serviceusers will be provided with a mobile phone in order to test how the system works. Whilstthey are using the phone system they would receive their normal care, which would notchange. The project will allow researchers to see whether this type of monitoring bytelephones is acceptable to service users and mental health workers. All informationentered on the phone would be password protected and confidential. Service users will beasked about how they found using the phone based system in individual interviews.For further information about the proposed project please contact:Caroline SandersResearch FellowHealth Sciences Research Group (Primary Care)University of Manchester5th Floor, Williamson Building,Oxford Road,Manchester M13 9PLTel: 0161 275 7619Email: caroline.sanders@manchester.ac.uk
