In the US only one in three people with anxiety and depression seek help. Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, Health Economist & Management Consultant at THINK-Health, moderates a panel that covers emerging online mental health resources that can help bridge this gap. These demos introduce us to a variety of accessible, quality care for those that can’t and don’t get these services.
Julia Hoffman, Mobile Applications Lead for Mental Health Services at Veterans Affairs, demos the PTSD Coach. A mobile app developed by the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans affairs, they are hoping to fill the large gap between those who need PTSD treatment and those who go in to receive it. PTSD Coach has four major sections: learn about PTSD, self-assessement check list, manage symptoms, and find support.
