Understanding and promoting mental health - Insights from psychological science
Date:5/2/2012

rs

As the demand for high-quality mental health treatment options increases, researchers have started to explore whether one-on-one sessions with a mental health professional are the only way to receive effective treatment. This symposium highlights the growing evidence for technology-based delivery of mental health interventions for substance use and mental health disorders. Kathleen Carroll from the Yale School of Medicine will present research on a computer-assisted cognitive behavioral therapy program that is showing promise as an effective, longer-lasting, and less costly way to treat individuals with substance dependence. Mary Brunette from the Dartmouth School of Medicine will discuss computerized decision support systems as an effective means of promoting smoking cessation treatment. Dror Ben-Zeev from Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center will highlight the use of mobile devices as a way to monitor substance use and symptom presentation and deliver interventions for individuals with schizophrenia. And Robert Evans from Google will discuss the various ways that mobile platforms can be used to research diverse topics ranging from employee wellness to allergy management, mood tracking, and eating behavior change.
