    Abstract

    Chronic health problems related to mental wellbeing are rapidly growing, calling for novel solutions focusing on individual as a psychophysiological being. We describe a novel technology-based concept for empowering citizen towards holistic self-management of her wellbeing: "P4Well" (Pervasive Personal and PsychoPhysiological management of WELLness). The primary focus of the concept is on management of stress and recovery from stress caused by daily life through improved health management strategies. The P4Well concept combines modern psychological methods with personal health technologies. The technologies include a web-portal and web-based tools, mobile phone with mobile client applications, wearable health monitoring devices, and different analysis methods based on physiological models for interpretation and feedback. The concept supports secured private expert consultation and peersupport through social media. Our driving principle is to recognize that an individual is the best master of her own wellness, and we target to empower her for realizing the fact.
