Using a smartphone app, Neureka, we aim to capture how mental health symptoms develop and evolve over time, in huge samples of people, providing a window into early detection and prevention. The project focuses on compulsiveness, the tendency for certain human behaviours to become habitual and urge-driven over time – from everyday behaviours like checking your phone and biting your nails to serious mental health conditions like obsessive-compulsive disorder and substance addiction. With the help of the public, we will understand how compulsive behaviours develop and trial new ways to help people get rid of them.
