Improved mental health care requires innovative strategies that are person centered, embedded in context, and capable of capturing meaningful symptom occurrence and nonoccurrence in daily life. Vulnerability and resilience (strength) require equal attention. Traditional static assessments are insufficient to capture the dynamic variation required to understand how to develop well-being. mHealth digital technologies, such as Ecological Momentary Assessment strategies and passive sensor tracking provide attractive solutions. This chapter develops a personalized medicine using mHealth technology and evaluates its merit for mental health care. In the future, ecological momentary assessment and passive monitoring using sensors may blend to form more powerful care methods for use in mental health.
