How can wearables be used to monitor and improve mental health?

The most desirable aspect of using these wearables is that they can collect data continuously, without stopping, for a long period of time, which is essential to detect stress or depression, or any mental health records. Stressful periods vary throughout the day, and depending on the environment, the patient can experience sharp but acute stress periods. Data like this can be recorded by wearables and smart devices, which can then provide insights for the therapist.
