Article : Can mental health apps replace human therapists?

le 5 novembre 2015

[New scientist] Turning to an app could be a quicker way to get help for depression and anxiety. It could even pick up on things a human will miss.

MEAGHAN FRITZ used to break out in cold sweats before meetings. A simple discussion with her boss would leave this otherwise confident woman stuttering and dizzy. To meet her, you’d never imagine she suffered from severe social anxiety. Then again, it surprised her too. Fritz had been treated for depression for years. “I’ve tried Seroquel, Lexapro and Xanax,” she says, rattling off a list like someone who has tried it all. But nothing quite worked. In fact, according to Fritz, she wasn’t even looking for help any more. “I knew I had a problem, but I didn’t know what it was,” she says. “It wasn’t until I took the test at Joyable that I had a name for it.”
