Recently, the demand for mental health services using information and communication technology (ICT) such as mobile communication and social network service (SNS) is increasing. Mobile health (m-Health) and health big data are expected to play a major role in driving the future healthcare paradigm. In particular, the value of applications utilizing smart devices including smartphone and wearable devices is increasing day by day. Mobile applications that can be applied to the patient to restore disease in the neuropsychiatric area can be easily provided, and clinicians can also use the clinic in patient diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. In practical use, it is still a step in the process, so it is necessary to check the stability of the system that operates the data and prevent infringement and leakage of personal information that may occur later. In addition, it is necessary to establish the effectiveness and credibility based on the basis of practical use of mobile health (m-Health) and health big data. With technological advances being made day by day, mental health care workers should be aware of this trend and have an active interest.
