Technology Could Be Mental Health’s Biggest Ally

first_imgChina and America want the AI Prize Title: Who … Tags:#Healthcare#mental health#online marketplace#scheduling platform#startup Mental health has dominated the news in recent years, from weak assessments of Europe’s mental health institutions to mass shootings to celebrity suicides. Each story underscores the need for mental health support — and the consequences of not making such support accessible.And the need for it may be stronger than previously believed: The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) reports that nearly 44 million American adults suffer from mental illness each year, translating to one in five adults experiencing a mental illness in any given year. NAMI correlates this with the high rate of addictions, homelessness, and crime plaguing those with mental health issues, and it notes that suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.With mental health support so badly needed, why do progressive nations have such a hard time supplying it? Part of it has to do with identification, and part of it has to do with accessibility. In an era when we rely on technology to fuel much of our work and medical care, we’ve been reluctant to apply technology to the problem of improving access to mental health support — and UMA Health is looking to change that.Creating a Marketplace for a Silent NeedAccording to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, only 40 percent of those suffering from anxiety issues and related disorders have disclosed this to their employers — despite these issues impacting their work performance and relationships with their colleagues. That means those suffering from mental illness are in a catch-22: They’re afraid disclosure will make their bosses and co-workers view them as weak, but they’re endangering their livelihood through the behaviors their mental health challenges cause.This is unfathomable to Dave Kerpen, the serial entrepreneur who recently became CEO of UMA Health. Kerpen’s father has chronic bipolar disorder that’s led him to spend the past three decades in and out of psych wards in New York. Kerpen says many hesitate to tell their employers for fear of judgment, but it gets in the way of peak performance, which should be the ultimate goal of both the employer and the employee.“I’ve always believed that mental health isn’t about those who are sick vs those who are well — it’s about all of us improving our happiness, security, sense of safety and self-worth,” he says. “It’s about all of us becoming focused on who we are and what we want to get out of life and give to this world.”Thus, he wanted to help build UMA Health, an online marketplace that connects people to mental health professionals and executive coaches, offering transparent information on costs, specialties, locations, availability, and ratings. The platform operates outside insurance processing, making it easy for patients to schedule and pay for appointments in one place. It also removes big barriers preventing those with mental health conditions from seeking help: Will there be a paper trail? Do I need a referral to see a specialist? How do I know this provider can even help me?Eliminating Barriers to CareKerpen says he endured the struggle firsthand while searching for a new therapist after his longtime therapist moved away, and he was frustrated by what he found: a lack of transparency about rates, lengthy phone call loops, and a time-consuming online search that made even getting help feel cumbersome.He believes that this difficulty, combined with the sheer frequency of mental health challenges, should encourage health professionals and private businesses to find ways to smooth the path to treatment and remove the stigma. “Managing mental health appointments should be as simple as getting an Uber,” Kerpen says.UMA is extending its services to companies aiming to improve their productivity. Its UMA for Business program enables employers to purchase discounted stipends for executives and employees seeking mental health care or career coaching. Kerpen says giving the UMA dollars directly to employers removes the fear of being punished for pursuing help for mental health — it emphasizes the forward-thinking perspective of businesses looking to help people before problems arise.And that also highlights the fact that everyone could use a mental health boost, not just those treating an “illness.” Kerpen says, “We’re all living on a spectrum of mental health, meaning there’s always room to move forward. We want to help those who’ve felt stuck at 30 and those who want to move from 95 to 100.”UMA believes the long-term impact is positive for both employees and employers. “Employees feel their development and well-being are prioritized, which keeps them going,” Kerpen says. “And employers remain competitive in their recruitment and retention efforts, being seen by both employees and candidates as providing a supportive environment.”UMA is looking to expand nationwide, and its free membership will help its expansion. Both consumers and mental health care providers or professional coaches can join the platform at no cost, and therapists have already applauded its elimination of administrative headaches: Aplana Choudhury, a licensed mental health counselor in New York, says she’s shifted to using the platform for all her clients, both those obtained through UMA and those who worked with her prior, because it enables them to focus on their work, not administrative concerns.In addition to accepting HSA cards and extending free membership, the company is offering $100 in credits for future appointments to those who sign up. Kerpen says, “We simply want to get people in touch with the providers who can get them where they want to go and keep them feeling as healthy and happy as possible along the way.”Technology has been applied to nearly every other aspect of our existence, but many remain hesitant to apply it to something as nebulous and feelings-centered as mental health. But, as UMA proves, technology may enable us to push many barriers out of the way and get exactly what we need: accessible mental health care for all.

India, Myanmar to discuss trade, security ties

first_imgIndian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna headed to Myanmar on Monday after reaffirming India’s commitment to economic and strategic cooperation with its Mayanmar’s new nominally civilian government.Krishna is the first high-level Indian official to visit Myanmar since an elected government replaced a military junta in March.India and Myanmar have developed deep economic and security ties over the past decade. India has said it believes talking quietly is a better approach than sanctions in dealing with Myanmar’s military-backed government, which has been widely criticized for human rights abuses.On Monday, Krishna did not reply directly to a question about whether he would meet opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi during his three-day visit. “I don’t know if I will get a chance to interact with other leaders during my brief stay in Yangon,” he said.India is also wary of China’s growing influence in Myanmar, and is in competition with its large regional rival for access to the country’s large natural gas resources.India and Myanmar have widened cooperation between their security forces since the mid-1990s, with both countries fighting armed insurgencies along their shared border.India says separatist rebels in its northeastern states often slip across the 1,000-mile-long border and take shelter in jungle bases inside Myanmar.Krishna, who will meet Myanmar President Thein Sein, said he will explore ways to increase trade and investment in oil and gas projects, hydroelectric power and railways.Two-way trade, which has doubled since 2006, reached $1.57 billion in 2010. The two countries will also review progress on a $110 million project to improve transport links to India’s remote northeastern states, Krishna said.advertisementThe ambitious Kaladan project includes the building of roads, a waterway on the Kaladan River and development of Sittwe port in western Myanmar, which will provide an opening to the sea for India’s landlocked northeastern states.- With AP inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Mario Lopez And Komen Chicago To Celebrate 20th Anniversary At Ignite The

first_imgSusan G. Komen Chicago will hold its Ignite the Fight Gala presented by Wintrust on Saturday, Oct. 21, at the Westin River North, celebrating 20 years of funding global research and providing critical breast health services for the underserved in the Chicago area.Komen Chicago will hold its Ignite the Fight Gala presented by Wintrust on Oct. 21The anniversary celebration will feature Mario Lopez, Emmy-winning host of “Extra,” as the Celebrity More than Pink Ambassador, as well as 20 More Than Pink Heroes, who will be honored for their exceptional compassion, bravery and leadership in the fight against breast cancer.The Gala will kick off with the Dearborn Street and Clark Street bridges over the Chicago River being illuminated in pink. The lighting ceremony, led by Ed Wehmer, president and CEO of Wintrust, will celebrate extraordinary people who have “bridged the gap,” by fighting to even the playing field for those who lack resources.More than 1,000 people in the Chicago area die from breast cancer each year, and there is a large disparity in the city, with the mortality rate of African-American women being 40 percent higher than Caucasian women, according to Komen Chicago executive director Bonnie Gordon. Many of those deaths could have been prevented, with an earlier diagnosis and optimal care. Komen Chicago has distributed $17.4 million in community grants over the past 20 years, to ensure the underserved throughout the Chicago area get the care they need.The bridge lighting takes place at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner, awards and dancing. Pink ties and pink cocktail attire encouraged. Tickets are now on sale at www.komenchicago.org/gala.“All of us have been touched by cancer. Wintrust is excited to help give everyone a fighting chance for survival as we partner with Komen Chicago’s incredible 20th anniversary celebration,” Wehmer says. “We’re honored that so many inspirational people are lending their voices and sharing their stories to help Komen Chicago achieve the goal of providing Quality Care for All in Chicago.”In addition to Lopez, an appearance client of Esterman.com, special guests and More Than Pink Heroes include Nancy Brinker, founder of Susan G. Komen, and Illinois Senate President John Cullerton. Other Heroes include those who have faced the disease or lost loved ones, volunteers and caregivers. Gala co-chairs are the mother/daughter team of Marcy and Katie Twardak.last_img read more

Who To Watch In The 2019 WNBA Playoffs

No. 1 Washington Mystics26-8, 9-1 in past 10 gamesYou may have heard that the Washington Mystics have a good offense. That’s true, but it’s a little like saying that UConn women’s basketball head coach Geno Auriemma, an 11-time NCAA champion, is a good coach. Led by MVP front-runner Elena Delle Donne, guard Kristi Toliver, point guard Natasha Cloud and Meesseman, Washington recorded the highest points per possession (1.128), the highest effective field-goal percentage (53.6 percent) and the most assists (746) in league history over an entire season. Delle Donne became the first player in league history to shoot 50 percent from the floor, 40 percent from 3-point range, and 90 percent from the free-throw line.1With minimums of 100, 25 and 50 makes, respectively. Cloud just set a new Mystics single-season assists record, and Meesseman, Hawkins and guard Aerial Powers all have credible cases for WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year. With a double-bye to the semifinals, the Mystics get a nine-day break, which they will use both to rest their bodies and to fine-tune their play on both ends of the court. That break could be just what the doctor ordered for the Mystics to win their first-ever WNBA title. No. 3 Los Angeles Sparks22-12, 7-3 in past 10 gamesEvery team this season has had to deal with players missing games, whether due to injury, the FIBA EuroBasket tournament in late June or personal reasons. For the Sparks, though, it was at a different level: The first time their entire roster was available to play was Aug. 22. So in many ways, it feels like Los Angeles’ season is just getting started. The good news is that the Sparks have three All-Star talents with championship experience in Chelsea Gray (14.5 PPG, 5.9 APG), Candace Parker (11.2 PPG, 6.4 RPG, 3.5 APG) and Nneka Ogwumike (16.1 PPG, 8.8 RPG). The bad news is that the roster is still settling in under first-year head coach Derek Fisher and, as The Athletic’s Sabreena Merchant recently detailed, the Sparks have struggled to close out games on the road. That could be a problem because the Sparks are unlikely to have home-court advantage beyond the second round. One player to watch in a potential semifinal series against Connecticut is Chiney Ogwumike, who was acquired from Connecticut shortly before the 2019 season. In three games against her former team this year, she averaged 14.7 points and 5.0 rebounds per game and shot 69 percent from the field. No. 7 Minnesota Lynx18-16, 6-4 in past 10 gamesIf you believe in the phenomenon of “odd-year teams,” Minnesota should be your bet to win it all in 2019, as the Lynx won WNBA titles in 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017. But head coach Cheryl Reeve’s team wasn’t even a surefire playoff team at the start of the year, returning only three players from 2018 (a fourth, Temi Fagbenle, rejoined the team midway through the 2019 season) and adding nine through the draft, free agency and trades. Center Sylvia Fowles (13.6 PPG, 8.9 RPG), point guard Odyssey Sims (14.5 PPG, 5.4 APG) and potential WNBA Rookie of the Year forward Napheesa Collier (13.1 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 1.9 SPG) have been Minnesota’s Big Three this season, and they will likely need to play like it to get Minnesota to the semifinals. The other crucial stat for the Lynx will be turnovers, which have been their Achilles’ heel all season. They turn the ball over on 20.5 percent of their possessions, which ranks last in the league, and surrender more than 16 points per game off of those turnovers. Those numbers will almost certainly need to improve for the Lynx to advance. No. 2 Connecticut Sun23-11, 7-3 in past 10 gamesConnecticut settled for the second seed after spending several weeks atop the league standings and finishing with a 15-2 record at home, tied with Los Angeles for best in the league. That home-court advantage bodes well for them in the semifinals, as the Sun will host the first two games and a potential Game 5. What else bodes well? They cannot draw Phoenix, their playoff nemesis of late, until the WNBA Finals (and even then, it would be a best-of-five series, not a single-elimination game).The Sun are led by center Jonquel Jones (14.6 PPG, 9.7 RPG), forward Alyssa Thomas (11.6 PPG, 7.8 RPG, 3.1 APG) and point guard Jasmine Thomas (11.1 PPG, 5.1 RPG). Guard Courtney Williams is one of the most exciting players to watch leaguewide: She grabs 5.6 rebounds per game despite standing only 5-foot-8, she can score in bunches, and she has the swagger to match her game. Backup center Theresa Plaisance could be an X-factor; Connecticut acquired her from Dallas at the trade deadline specifically to give the team the kind of veteran forward that teams like Los Angeles (Chiney Ogwumike), Washington (Tianna Hawkins, Emma Meesseman) and Las Vegas (Hamby) have on their benches. Put all of these pieces together, and the Sun have a strong chance of making their first WNBA Finals since 2005. No. 6 Seattle Storm18-16, 5-5 in past 10 gamesThe Storm are the defending champions, but they have an entirely new look in 2019 after seasonlong injuries to stars Sue Bird and Breanna Stewart. They can struggle on offense, ranking ninth in offensive rating, but are perhaps the most exciting team in the league to watch on defense. Point guard Jordin Canada and forward Natasha Howard rank first and second in the WNBA in steals per game, which fuels the Storm’s 17.3 points per game off of turnovers, good for the third-best mark in the league. Howard also ranks third in the league in blocks with 1.7 per game, making her the first WNBA player to rank in the top three in steals and blocks per game since Yolanda Griffith in 1999. Watching Seattle is even more exciting because it usually means seeing relatively few stoppages in play; despite playing such an aggressive defense, the Storm both commit the second-fewest fouls and draw the second-fewest fouls in the league, per 100 possessions. The Storm’s road to a championship looks quite different than it did last season, when they were the No. 1 seed, but tough defense, a talented point guard and a potential First Team All-WNBA forward aren’t a bad place to start. No. 4 Las Vegas Aces21-13, 6-4 in past 10 gamesBefore the season started, Las Vegas was a trendy pick to win the title behind three former No. 1 draft picks, sharpshooter Kayla McBride and 6-foot-8 center Liz Cambage. The team’s defense has been formidable, but the Aces have been inconsistent on offense, which may have cost them a chance at a double-bye. As SB Nation’s Mike Prada recently explained, they’ve actually been better when Cambage and starting forward A’ja Wilson — arguably the team’s top two players — are not on the court together. But the Aces made the playoffs for the first time since 2014, and they now have a chance to peak at the right time. Look for potential WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year Dearica Hamby (11.0 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 48.8 percent shooting) to tip a game in the Aces’ favor with her energy and versatility off the bench. No. 8 Phoenix Mercury15-19, 4-6 in past 10 gamesThe Mercury still have Taurasi, arguably the greatest WNBA player of all time, but she is recovering from back surgery and is “day-to-day for the foreseeable future,” according to High Post Hoops’ Brendon Kleen. And, unlike the previous two seasons, the Mercury will start the playoffs on the road, where they went only 6-11 this season. To make another run to the WNBA semifinals, the Mercury will likely need a big performance from 6-foot-9 All-WNBA center Brittney Griner, who is averaging 20.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per game this season while shooting 56.4 percent from the floor. Forward DeWanna Bonner, the Mercury’s other 2019 All-Star, will also need to be efficient on offense. She has carried the team at times this season and averages 17.2 points per game, but she has struggled with efficiency, shooting only 38 percent from the floor, including 27 percent on 3-pointers. An X-factor for Phoenix could be the experience of head coach Sandy Brondello, who has 17 career WNBA playoff wins and knows a thing or two about being the underdog from coaching Team Australia against the United States. Don’t be surprised if she has a trick or two up her sleeve. After more than three months of jockeying for position, four of the eight playoff-bound WNBA teams will begin their postseasons on Wednesday. As the No. 5 through No. 8 seeds, Chicago, Seattle, Minnesota and Phoenix will face off in two single-elimination games. The reward for the winners is another single-elimination game on Sunday against No. 3 seed Los Angeles or No. 4 seed Las Vegas. In the past few seasons, this playoff format has produced several upsets, including Washington over New York in 2017 (courtesy of nine 3-pointers from Kristi Toliver) and Phoenix over Connecticut in both 2017 and 2018 (courtesy of Diana Taurasi, who sports a career 13-1 record in playoff-deciding games).Meanwhile, atop the bracket, Washington and Connecticut secured double-byes, skipping the single-elimination games, and they now await the winners of the first two rounds for their best-of-five semifinal series.Let’s take a look at each of the eight playoff teams, starting with the four in action Wednesday and progressing to the title favorites. No. 5 Chicago Sky20-14, 6-4 in past 10 gamesBehind first-year head coach James Wade and point guard Courtney Vandersloot, the Sky surprised many onlookers by challenging for a top-4 seed. The Sky’s strength is its backcourt: Its top three scorers are starting guards Diamond DeShields, Allie Quigley and Vandersloot. Vandersloot also recently broke her own WNBA record for assists in a season — finishing with an even 300 — and averages 11.2 points, 9.1 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game. With center Jantel Lavender recently suffering a season-ending injury, Wade will have to come up with a game plan for Chicago to battle inside. One blueprint might be in the Sky’s 105-78 win over Phoenix on Sept. 1: Griner scored 26 points for Phoenix, but Chicago hit more than 50 percent of its shots, had six players score in double figures and committed only six turnovers to run away with the win. read more

Elections officials hope to certify the results by November 23, according to the DOE. Governor Bill Walker suspended his reelection campaign days after Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott resigned over what Walker described as an “inappropriate overture to a woman.” Dunleavy: “Over these past four years, too many Alaskans have been shut out of the big decisions facing our state – from changes to the Permanent Fund to crime policy to addressing the state’s budget deficit. Elections remind us that in our system of government the people rule, and today the people made their voices heard. Now begins the real work of restoring trust between the people and their government. With the help of the people of Alaska, we will protect and restore the Permanent Fund Dividend, we will end the state’s crime spree, and we will unleash Alaska’s unparalleled economic potential.”center_img The state will continue to count absentee and other uncounted ballots a week after Election Day.
