If you're a mental health care professional (e.g. counselor, MFT, academic researcher, social worker, or psychologist), I'd love to talk to you to learn what your job's day-to-day is like. That might sound mundane to you but it's a topic of fascination to me as an outsider 🤓Drop me a note to say hi! :-)
With the advent of smart phones and artificial intelligence (specifically, "machine learning" , "data science", and "big data"), I want to explore if it's possible to:
- Improve delivery of care (e.g. help clients with self-aid and stay on track between visits)
- Increase accessibility to mental care (e.g. stopgap measures before that 1st counselor visit)
- On the operational "business" side of things: Minimize wasted time / increase effiency (e.g. appointment reminders, automate / manage billing, etc.)
