This focused issue is guest edited by Dr. Patricia Salber from The Doctor Weighs In, USA and Dr. Steven Chan from University of California, Davis, USA.

With the rapid development of technology in healthcare, mobile health is generally used by physicians in health management, such as treating and preventing mental disorders. Collective experiences in the use of mHealth in mental health help update readers on the contributions mHealth is making in this field and shed a light on the advantages or disadvantages of mHealth, and that’s the main purpose of this focused issue.

The series “The Role of mHealth in Mental Health” was commissioned by the editorial office, mHealth without any sponsorship or funding. Patricia Salber and Steven Chan served as the unpaid Guest Editors for the series.
