I Designed an App So Anyone Can Access Mental Health Anytime and Anywhere: Why No One Uses It and How Do We Fix It
7:00-8:00 p.m. Central Time
Presented via Zoom and Facebook Live

With Dr. Trey Andrews, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Ethnic Studies and Associate Director for the Minority Health Disparities Initiative at UNL.

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).

This FREE program will be presented via Zoom and Facebook Live. Register here for the Zoom session. To join us on Facebook Live, visit the UNSM Facebook page at 7:00 p.m. November 24th!
