Are we turning into a self-diagnosis society?
With the increased use of mental health apps, we’re spending less time with experts and more time self-diagnosing.
We feel we have a problem, then search for an app to fix it.
Recent research conducted by the University of Sydney in Australia says, “…apps could lead to over-diagnosing mental illness and preventing individuals who need help from reaching out.”
Should health apps be regulated by the FDA like pharmaceuticals drugs, so those who need help must see a professional before usage?
