Mental Health Telemetry for Anxiety Disorders

In collaboration and with funding from the Frederick W. Thompson Anxiety Disorders Centre, we are investigating the usefulness of mental health telemetry for enhancing the treatment of hair-pulling or skin-picking, and as a tool to assist with cognitive behavioural therapy in obsessive compulsive disorder. We hope that adding mental health telemetry to standard treatments will lead to faster uptake of effective strategies for dealing with these illnesses.

Led by Drs. Peggy Richter, Mark Sinyor and Neil Rector, this project will explore whether using mental health telemetry can be helpful with cognitive behavioural therapy homework completion in these two conditions.
