Mental illness, particularly conditions such as depression and anxiety, is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. 1 in 4 adults in the United States experiences some type of mental illness every year, yet over 100 million people across the nation lack access to sufficient mental health services. In developing countries, the situation is even more problematic.
But researchers, entrepreneurs and scientists are now developing online programs and psychology apps that teach therapy skills such as CBT. These have the potential to make mental health support more accessible and affordable. Code Therapy is a film about digital technology in the field of mental health.
