How Does AI & Evolving Technology Benefit Mental Health with Meera Visishtha
Show Notes

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has taken the world by storm. These days, it's nearly impossible to go online and not find an advertisement or someone talking about the benefits (or detriments, depending on who you listen to) of AI software.

But how does AI and other evolving technologies impact the mental health world? Can it help a clinician with their efforts? Can it provide early detection (and even diagnosis) of mental health conditions by analyzing patterns in data such as speech, text, or facial impressions? Can it serve as a substitute for mental health treatment?

As we move forward, AI will continue to get smarter and more intuitive and it's up to us to understand how this technology can aid our plight and, more importantly, how to use it responsibly.

In Season 4 Episode 5 of Stuff My Therapist Says, Sara Makin is joined by Makin Wellness Master's Level Clinical Intern Meera Vasishtha for a chat about AI, ChatGPT, and other technologies that are changing the mental health world for the better. In this discussion, you'll discover:

  • What AI is all about and how it benefits the mental health world
  • Why it's important to gain an understanding of AI technology
  • How you can utilize AI in your life, from a mental health standpoint and beyond
