As colleges continue their digital transformation of mental health services, understanding the evidence and use cases for mental health smartphone apps is critical. This talk will explore the latest reviews and research on how colleges are using apps, discuss the research implications of new monitoring/treatment implications, and cover practical clinical consideration around integrating apps into treatment. A focus on safety and regulatory issues will outline current best practices and an evidence based approach app for selecting apps will be explained with case examples.

Participants will be able to:
– List the four stages of the American Psychiatric Associations app evaluation framework and understand how each stage can inform app selection
– Understand at least three risks and three benefits in using apps in care
– Recognize aspects of apps that student’s value and how those can be incorporated into treatment
