The research on electronic aggression among college students indicates that it is highly prevalent, with over 93% of college students reporting some negative effects due to electronic victimization.

This will be a busy year as the role of new digital tools in medicine converge to offer novel opportunities to clinical care.

As technology continues to expand exponentially, so does our potential to harness these technological capabilities to expand the field of psychiatry. At Psychiatric Times this year, we highlighted a range of topics on these advancements.

Can mobile technologies advance care for schizophrenia? The research literature strongly supports feasibility, although clinical data on validity, safety, and efficacy are still lacking.

How will mobile mental health technologies change the nature of the psychiatrist-patient relationship? And do these technologies truly deliver what they promise?
