Mental Health Apps: A Solution or a Problem?
Apr 03 - San Francisco

"The number of mental health apps available to Internet users has exploded [to over 10,000] in recent years, with hundreds of downloadable programs pitched at those struggling with depression and anxiety, isolation and addiction. There are apps today to track our moods and our heart rate. Apps to monitor alcohol intake and promote well-being. And apps that purport to diagnose reliably while helping to relieve symptoms. Many of them are very popular—but are their recommendations sound?” - Psychology Today

Come participate in a lively panel discussion with practitioners and technologists about the past and future of technology in the mental health space. We’ll be diving head first into what John Torous, chair of the American Psychiatric Association’s Smartphone App Evaluation Task Force, has called “the Wild West of health care.” Bring your enthusiasm and your skepticism -- our panelists will, too!

Registrations will close 4/2. No walk-ins registrations will be accepted.
