Hacking Mental Health

Description During their life, about 40% of people suffer from serious mental health impairments. Those who are seeking help have to wait several months for an initial consultation. Internet-based self-help tools offer immediate help, have a low entry threshold, and have proven efficacious in research—with similar effects as face-to-face therapy. First suppliers are arising, but in my opinion there should be options, which are both open access and open source. I'm psychologist and researcher at the university of Bern, currently developing a platform for collaborative self-help tools. See the prototype, love it, and hopefully join the project.
