SAN FRANCISCO--()--Woebot Health today announced it has appointed David C. Mohr to its Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Mohr joins the group of healthcare and technology leaders, which is focused on advancing Woebot Health’s clinical and R&D activities and working to enable a future where clinically-validated digital solutions are an integral part of a comprehensive ecosystem of care.

Dr. Mohr’s current affiliations bring substantial experience to the position. He is the Director for the Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies, Chief of Behavioral Medicine in the Department of Preventive Medicine, and Professor of Preventive Medicine (Behavioral Medicine), Medical Social Sciences and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Mohr also works to progress the field of digital mental health as a fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA) and president of the Society for Digital Mental Health (SDMH).

Dr. Mohr’s interest in the remote delivery of mental health spans more than two decades. His academic and research work focuses on the design and implementation of sustainable and integratable digital mental health treatments that incorporate patient-centered design processes and stakeholder input. This work started at the University of Arizona at Tucson where his interest in the remote delivery of mental health explored ways to deliver phone and internet-based treatments to Native Americans who couldn't come into the clinic.

“I’ve been aware of Woebot since Alison Darcy published her first paper, and it’s exciting to see it’s already made a significant difference for people seeking easily accessible support,” said Dr. Mohr. “I look forward to the opportunity to collaborate on ways to make these tools an integral and essential part of healthcare systems.”

“David is a giant in the field with a long history of strategic thinking that has helped psychologists and technologists understand how newer developments can positively impact the field,” said Chief Clinical Officer and Board Co-Chair Athena Robinson. “I’m excited that we can tap his acute sensibility and deep experience in implementation science to shape a future where mental health is accessible to all.”
