Building vs. Breaking Mental Health with Digital Technology

Healthcare Shapers Perspectives Guest:
Craig A. DeLarge, MBA, MPH

A tipping point is approaching where the majority of humanity will use digital devices for communication, work and shopping. What if this same majority were equally good at using their digital devices to increase their mental and behavioral wellness.

A barrier to this “what if” is digital mental health literacy, or skillfulness in applying everyday digital technologies to one’s mental and behavioral health.

Listen or watch as Craig DeLarge describes:
*His journey that lead to the formation of The Digital Mental Health Project
*How increasing supply of digital mental health solutions that is not understood or adopted well enough in our population creates the need for digital mental health literacy
*Digital mental health applications which include teletherapy, mobile apps, virtual reality, passive remote sensing, care coordination, etc.
*What equitable mental healthcare looks like.
