30 Modern Mental Health Innovations

From Emotive Awareness Plugins to Therapeutic Chatbot Apps

— January 27, 2017 — Lifestyle
These modern mental health innovations range from therapeutic chatbot apps to emotive awareness plugins that mobile users can track when feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed. Once a stigma, mental health issues are becoming a more open topic of discussion, going beyond medical studies to social media channels, branded campaigns and even the workforce.

In addition to examples like inviting mental health clinics that take the shame out of confronting one's issues, other standouts include panic-alleviating mobile games that are ideal for those suffering from anxiety attacks while in public settings.

Furthermore, examples like text-powered therapy platforms offer a cost-effective alternative to in-person sessions which can be expensive. This specific treatment method is also discreet, allowing those who aren't ready for in-person therapy to express health concerns openly.
