25TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

IS THERE AN APP FOR THAT? HOW TO LEARN TO STOP WORRYING & LOVE THE TECHNOLOGY

Sorry… this video is no longer available.

There is no question that mobile technology has become an integral part of the lives of youth. This has led to a lot of concern about the impact technology has on young people. Since technology usage is showing no sign of slowing down, time may be better spent focusing on leveraging technology to improve health and wellbeing. There are currently thousands of mobile health (or mHealth) apps available, making it all the more difficult to determine which provide quality care. This presentation will provide an overview of the existing research on mHealth for mental health in youth and will also cover some of our ongoing research on the usage and impacts of SafeUT, Utah’s own unique app-based service that connects youth with licensed clinicians in times of need.

Once you have engaged in this session, you will be able to:

1) Summarize some of the current and ongoing research around the use of apps in mental health care and,
2) Explore the positive and negative aspects of apps in this arena as well as the ethical conundrums, impact on help-seeking behavior, use of mental health services, how professionals can interface and support individuals seeking or using such programs.
