Mental Health: Innovating Care
Meet the Guests:
Dana Udall, Ph.D. is the Chief Clinical Officer at Ginger and Headspace Health. Alison Darcy, Ph.D. is the President and Founder of Woebot Health. Virna Little, Psy.D. is a clinical psychologist and the co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Concert Health.
This episode explores how different companies are innovating mental healthcare.
- Personalized Care. It is important that mental health resources reflect the backgrounds and identities of the patients, especially for vulnerable or underrepresented groups. Dr. Udall points out that there is no “one size fits all” for treatment.
- Mental Health Ally. Woebot is an AI that doesn’t replace therapy, rather its complimentary. Dr. Darcy shares that it helps encourage self-directed mental health care and enables patients to better engage in the practices they learn during therapy sessions.
- Collaborative Care. Dr. Little describes how collaborative care gives patients the flexibility to choose their treatment path. It leverages the trust and relationship patients build with their primary care physician and compliments it with a team of specialists.
