I agree. We may not know how effectively using technology to help provide metal health treatment works, but it’s woth trying it out for this exact reason:
“We don’t lack high-quality, evidence-based psychological treatments for many mental health problems. These treatments have been verified by dozens of clinical trials. What we are short of is the skilled clinicians to deliver them.
But what if you could escape this bottleneck by taking the therapist out of the equation? Instead of people delivering treatment, could we use technology to make the best interventions available to the millions of people who so urgently need them? Imagine: on-demand therapy, accessed when and where you want it. Wouldn’t that be an extraordinary breakthrough?”
I think it would be an amazing breakthrough. So why not try?
