The panel discussion on measuring mental health agrees that current tools are not sufficient to capture the complexity of mental health conditions and their nuanced impacts on an individual's life. The panelists brought up issues such as the focus on illness versus preventative wellness, the need for measurements to focus not just on symptoms but also on quality of life and patient well-being, and how to make mental health care more accessible and equitable for all individuals. There are suggestions about also using new data sources like AI speech and pattern recognition with self-report for data collection. The role of cultural context in measurements and potential biases in treatment was additionally mentioned.
