Abstract

Mental disorders are a major cause of disability and death throughout the world every year. Indonesia has low mental health and is mostly experienced by adolescents. Indeed, recognizing the signs and symptoms of stress in adolescents early is a preventive measure before the condition worsens and causes many losses. Mental health service programs have so far been limited, both in schools and in health care centres. Facing such conditions, this study proposes a mobile application model that can be an early detection tool for adolescent mental health and information sharing between adolescents and teachers or health workers. The screening results will be followed up by the health service if a problem is found. This research builds a prototype of the mobile application to the modelling stage. The model is produced from the system requirements analysis, the model presented here is in the form of; Context Diagram, Entity Relational Diagram (ERD), Relational Diagram Table (TRD), Flow Chart and User Interface Design. Early mental health detection uses the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ). Data collection is done by interview, observation and study of literature. This information system can be used by primary health care and implemented in schools, making it easier for adolescent mental health screening.
