Digital Drop-In: Discuss How Digital Tools Can Be Leveraged in Mental Health

Discuss How Digital Tools Can Be Leveraged in Mental Health

ABCT and One Mind PsyberGuide have been collaborating on casual and interactive bi-monthly sessions in which we discuss how digital tools can be leveraged in mental health. At the Drop-Ins, we welcome people no matter what brings them to an interest in digital mental health: clinicians who are exploring integrating apps into their practice; people with lived experience who are looking for digital solutions to mental health needs; researchers who are hoping to share their knowledge; and app developers who want to share their product ideas.

Upcoming sessions in February are:

  • Digital Mental Health for the Black Community (2/2/22 at 1p PT)
  • Digital Literacy (2/16/22 at 1p PT)

Upcoming sessions in March are:

  • Using Public Forums and Social Media for Mental Health (3/2/22 at 1p PT)
  • Digital Tools and Women’s Mental Health (3/16/22 at 1p PT)

Sessions are flexible, varied, and relevant. We’ve had conversations around how digital mental health can be of help through current events like COVID and its effect on mental health. We’ve also covered digital mental health resources for specific groups, like LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities.

Whether you need a tool to address what’s keeping you up at night, or if you need a VR solution for a spider-phobic client—we look at how digital tools can be helpful across a broad range of needs.

What Is Cognitive Behavior Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of treatment that is based firmly on research findings.  It places emphasis on changing your cognitions (thoughts) or behaviors (actions) in order to effect change in how you feel. These approaches help people in achieving specific changes or goals.

Changes or goals might involve:

A way of acting: like smoking less or being more outgoing;
A way of feeling: like helping a person to be less scared, less depressed, or less anxious;
A way of thinking: like learning to problem-solve or get rid of self-defeating thoughts;
A way of dealing with physical or medical problems: like reducing back pain or helping a person stick to a doctor’s suggestions.

Cognitive behavioral therapists usually focus more on the current situation and its solution, rather than the past. They concentrate on a person’s views and beliefs about their life. CBT is an effective treatment for individuals, parents, children, couples, and families. The goal of CBT is to help people improve and gain more control over their lives by changing behaviors that don’t work well to ones that do.

How to Get Help

If you are looking for help, either for yourself or someone else, you may be tempted to call someone who advertises in a local publication or who comes up from a search of the Internet. You may, or may not, find a competent therapist in this manner. It is wise to check on the credentials of a psychotherapist. It is expected that competent therapists hold advanced academic degrees. They should be listed as members of professional organizations, such as the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies or the American Psychological Association. Of course, they should be licensed to practice in your state. You can find competent specialists who are affiliated with local universities or mental health facilities or who are listed on the websites of professional organizations.
