Technology Assisted Programs That Promote Mental Health for Teenagers

2015-04-15 11:08:22 | BioPortfolio


The mission of this project is to develop novel systems of care that can provide efficacious, scalable, cost-effective, participant friendly technology assisted behavioral interventions (TABIs) for the prevention of depression in adolescents. The investigators define TABIs as interventions that use information and telecommunications technologies such as the internet, mobile or traditional phones, computers and/or other technologies to support and deliver psychological and behavioral interventions. Through usability testing, focus interviews, and field trials, investigators may modify the technologies and intervention based on immediate usage data.
