We’re accustomed to using technology to track our health patterns—from counting steps to monitoring our REM sleep cycles.
But what if we could use an app to better understand our mental health triggers and access coping mechanisms?
Dr. Edward Selby partnered with Michigan Software Labs to create Storm/Breaker.
Selby is a faculty member at Rutgers Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He is a leading psychology expert who specializes in the treatment of suicidal and self-injurious behavior, personality disorders, and eating disorders.
“The better we can understand the underlying causes and dynamics that result in the problems we define as ‘mental illness,’ the better we can design, tailor, and adapt treatments to help improve those underlying problems,” said Selby.
But few mental health apps are developed with such attention to psychological research.
