Searching for the holy grail of mental health care

Imagine going to your primary care clinic and along with a blood test, they also took a sample of your language. The brain is too complicated for typical lab tests, but in the future a test like this may help diagnose mental health disorders more accurately. In this episode, Dr. Rebecca Resnik discusses how we can break down silos across areas of specialization and use technology to foster collaboration between mental health professionals and primary care physicians.

"What we desperately need is a way to supplement primary care, so we can figure out the people who need mental health care....An algorithm and software are so much cheaper than an actual clinician. If we can find something that's cheaper and more accurate and can save lives, that's really exciting."
