This paper presents the lessons learnt on the design, development and evaluation of a pervasive computing-based system for supporting the treatment of bipolar disorder. The findings presented here are the result of over 3 years of activity within the MONARCA EU project. The challenges listed and detailed in this paper may be used in future research as a set of relevant checklist items in the development of innovative solutions for mental health treatment and in a broader way for future research on personal health systems.
