Mental Health Resilience Score

Upcoming

Empower your mental wellbeing . The Mental Health Resilience Score (MHRS) is a measure designed to gauge overall mental health of a user based off the behavioural phenotype of the individual. The machine learning model learns which aspect of your user's behaviour is putting the user at-risk or is making them resilient to mental health conditions. Based on clinically-backed rating scales and years of research, the score allows you to understand the user's mental health state and to triage users for self-managment, for behavioural change or to seek clinical intervention.

Understanding the Score

The MHRS is trained to predict a clinical measure of general mental health. Understanding how the score works will allow you to unlock the true potential of digital phenotyping applied to mental health and serve the mental health of your users.

How to Read the Score

A lower score generally indicates behaviour that is of low resilience, while a higher score may suggest increased resilience-inducing behaviour. It's important to analyze the contribution of each factor for a comprehensive understanding.

Interpreting the State

  • High : Suggests significantly resilient behaviour, indicaitng the optimal behavioural state.
  • Medium : Indicates moderately resilient behaviour, which might impact well-being occasionally.
  • Low : Reflects behaviour that could benefit from intervention to increase the influence on daily life.
  • Minimal : Denotes an negligible resilient behaviour, suggesting a calm mental state.

How the MHRS model was trained

The score was trained on 50k+ samples of the DASS21 rating scale. based on behavioural biomarkers alone.

Limitations and Considerations

The Mental Health Score is a wellness tool and not a diagnostic measure. It should not replace professional medical advice. Individual experiences and psychological factors can also influence anxiety levels.

  1. Inference from Physical Behavior Alone : The mental health scores infer the psychological state of a user solely based on physical behavior captured through smartphones and wearables. This method provides a limited perspective, as mental health is a complex interplay of various factors including genetics, personal experiences, and environmental influences, which cannot be fully captured through physical activity data alone.
  2. Screening, Not Diagnostic : The training of the machine learning models for MHS is based on subjective clinical rating scales such as PHQ-9 for depression and GAD-7 for anxiety. These scales are used for screening and not for clinical diagnosis. Therefore, the MHS should be viewed as indicative of the level of severity of a mental health disorder rather than a clinical diagnosis.
  3. Explainability Factors of behavior alone : While the models provide 'explainability factors' indicating which aspects of user behavior impact the scores most, these factors are derived from limited behavioral data. They might not encompass all relevant variables that contribute to an individual’s mental health state.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: How can I improve my Mental Health Resilience Score (MHRS)?

A: Improving your MHRS Score involves maintaining consistent physical activity, achieving daily activity goals, and minimizing periods of inactivity. Similarly for sleep It's also important to address any significant deviations in your usual activity, sleep and phone usage patterns.

Q: What does a low MHRS Score indicate?

A: A high Anxiety Score suggests higher levels of anxiety, possibly impacting daily life. It's a prompt to evaluate lifestyle habits and consider professional advice if needed.

Q: Can physical activity alone manage mental health?

A: While physical activity is a key factor in managing anxiety, it's one part of a broader approach. Mental health is multifaceted, and professional guidance is often necessary for effective management.
