The Adolescent Mental Health Journey and Digital Therapeutics
December 1, 2022
Hosted by Dr. Veirdre Jackson
Reconciliation, reconnection, and support from within and from others, while important, can be difficult to achieve on our own. Join Dr. Benjamin Alouf, board certified Pediatrician and Chief Medical Officer at Limbix, on a Flip Side conversation about the role these factors and more play in a young person’s mental health journey. Dr. Alouf and the diverse team of clinicians, product designers, researchers, and engineers at Limbix are on a mission to make mental health treatment accessible to young people who need it the most, when and where they need it the most. He will share his knowledge about treatment options for adolescent depression, namely digital therapeutics. Digital therapeutics allow young people to feel more comfortable with their feelings and connect with mental health treatment, like cognitive behavioral therapy, which has been shown to be very effective in this population. Hear from Dr. Alouf the story of a digital therapeutic user who gained a deeper understanding of their feelings and symptoms with the guidance of a digital therapeutic. This Flip Side conversation will also delve into real issues young people in minority and marginalized communities are facing when accessing mental healthcare.
