Ryan Hagen on Tracking Mental Health with a Smartphone

Ryan Hagen is a doctoral student in clinical psychology who’s terrified of people getting therapy through Siri.

In the video below, Ryan explains his current three-month study, which you can check out or join here. (Filmed by the Boston QS Show&Tell meetup group.)

From the New York QS Show&Tell group: Robert Rabinovitz, a design teacher at the Parsons New School of Design and a designer himself, mapped the 40-minute period on January 19, 2007 when he experienced his first brain seizure. He takes us through his gripping story, moment by moment, with images of what he saw that day. Robert is also writing a play, writing a research report and planning a film about his experience of survival. Watch the video below to see how the design process saved his life.
