About this app

EARS (Effortless Assessment of Risk States) is a research tool developed by the University of Oregon's Center for Digital Mental Health. EARS is intended to be used by individuals who have already consented to participate in one of our ongoing research studies.

Our devices have a lot to say about mental health.

Donating your digital data helps us study patterns in behavior. We’re studying data to learn how to predict a mental health crisis before it happens, so support can be sent in time.

We’re committed to solve mental health challenges.

The Center for Digital Mental Health is a research Center based at the University of Oregon. We research and build digital tools with a focus to improve mental health, especially amongst underserved groups & young people.

We can use your confidential data to help everyone.

Our University Ethics Committee ensures that:

- You agree with how your data is used.

I feel more like I am contributing to research of spyware than actually helping advance general mental health.
