Science Cafe: I Designed an App So Anyone Can Access Mental Health Anytime and Anywhere: Why No One Uses It and How Do We Fix It
Feeling down? Anxious? There is (supposedly) an app for that! Mental health apps and technology are supposed to expand the reach of mental health resources, basically delivering automated treatment. People largely said they wanted mental health apps, and Dr. Andrews helped design one of them. He will discuss the challenges in getting apps to live up to their promise and potential solutions (hint: researchers may still need help from real people). 

Saturday, November 28th
Investigate Saturday Science Lab: Absorption
The science lab is open at Morrill Hall from 9:30am-12:30pm. Activities will be self-guided and set up in our Science Exploration Zone or Elephant Hall.
