Over the last several years, mobile health (mHealth) has become an increasingly popular method for delivering health interventions. mHealth has been utilized especially for mental health interventions. However, the literature on interventions for people with serious mental illness, specifically schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, is limited. Prior research has noted the importance of conducting clinical trials to better determine the impact of mHealth interventions on people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. This review identifies 6 clinical trials of mHealth interventions that aim to improve clinical outcomes of people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The results of the review show that there is moderate evidence that mHealth interventions are beneficial to people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. However, further research is needed to identify with models of mHealth interventions are most effective, and for which clinical outcomes.
