Abstract [en]

Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year (NAMI). High-income nations spend on average 5 percent of total health spending on mental health, whereas low to middle-income countries spend less than 2 percent (WHO). Nearly nine in 10 Americans are online today, and more than three quarters of Americans own a smartphone. There are no differences in smartphone ownership among different racial and ethnic groups (Pew). Given this, advances in digital mental health applications provide new opportunities to increase access to traditionally underserved groups, customize interventions, and enhance our understanding of psychopathology on a large scale. This symposium showcases the use of digital health technologies in a variety of clinical samples and in the general population. We argue that the digital research laboratory extends far outside traditional brick-and-mortar labs. We will demonstrate that digital technologies provide benefit to patients/participants and generate scientific/clinical insights that would not have been possible with traditional models.

Consistent with ABCT’s 2018 emphasis on technology, this set of speakers highlight perceptions, feasibility, acceptability, and importance of technological interventions. Additionally, our symposium is comprised of speakers at a range of career levels (including early and mid-career researchers, as well as a graduate student). First, Courtney Beard will present data on smartphone and social media usage in serious mental illness. Second, Marie Forgeard will present data from a smartphone self-assessment study in a partial hospital program. Third, Samantha Connolly will present data on veterans’ perceptions of smartphone app use in mental health care. Fourth, Chelsey Wilks will present data on “Pocket Skills”, a dialectical behavior therapy app for smartphones. Last, Lauren Rutter will introduce methods for building assessment tools for research that are designed with the goals of patients / participants in mind. Finally, Per Carlbringwill synthesize the talks and discuss the implications for research and clinical practice.
