Mental illnesses are prevalent and costly. As they disproportionally impact minorities, these illnesses serve to reinforce social injustices. While universal screening is recommended, current screening surveys are too cumbersome. Thus, research has started exploring mental illness screening with data collected using mobile apps as a sustainable alternative. We detail two mobile data collections conducted this year. The mobile apps collected retrospective data on the phone to reduce participation burden and response bias. The first collection notably gathered depression survey score, demographics, text prompt, and recorded audio from over 300 college students. The second collection notably gathered depression survey score, anxiety survey score, demographics, text messages, and audio prompts from over 400 crowd-sourced workers. The datasets will be valuable in training models to perform mobile mental illness screening.
