Mental Health Technology Study

This project examines the use of technology within residential and outpatient mental health settings in New Hampshire and Vermont with the goal of identifying if and how technology-based tools could support and enhance mental health services. The study is comprised of three phases: (1) ethnographic observations of and interviews regarding availability and use of technology, broadly conceptualized to include computers, mobile phones, videoconferencing, etc., among clients and staff in real-world clinical settings to assess the viability of the introduction of technology-based treatment tools and their necessary supports in these settings; (2) implementation of a ‘technology navigator’ to support the implementation, training, and use of technology-based tools in the clinical setting; and (3) examination of the process and outcomes of implementing a technology navigator in a real-world clinical setting.
