AbleTo launched a new digital health tool called AbleTo Digital Screener, which is a three-minute evidence-based, clinical self-assessment that identifies depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. Consumers who take the assessment on AbleTo.com have the option to learn more about AbleTo's programs to see if it is right for them. Said programs are highly-personalized and meant to treat depression, anxiety, and stress related to co-morbid chronic medical conditions or sudden life-events.
"One in five U.S. adults struggle with their emotional or mental health each year. AbleTo has made great strides in addressing the mental health of individuals, but these new digital tools will enable reach to millions of Americans," AbleTo CEO Rob Rebak said in a statement. "We have heavily invested in technology upgrades and personnel to scale our business over the past year."
The AbleTo Screener is a 22-question, clinically-validated tool designed to identify signs of the most common mental health conditions and factors that can lead to dangerous levels of stress. The assessment covers depression and anxiety; life transitions; trauma; insomnia; substance abuse; and social determinants of health.
Once consumers complete the screener, they have the option of speaking with a representative to discuss enrollment in one of AbleTo's outcomes-based, remote-CBT programs or learning more about programs and resources available for them.
"The AbleTo Screener is a tool for people to understand and control their mental health and wellbeing. It will allow someone to get a high-level read on areas of concern, as well as inform our therapists where to assess further during the initial consultation. And unlike most online questionnaires, people can get care on the other side of the results. We don't leave you with an empty 'score' and a resource kit — we want to pair you with an expert who can help," said AbleTo's Chief Clinical Officer, Aimee Peters.
