MATTER Lab

MATTER (Mental Assistive Technologies for Therapy, Education, and Research) is a research lab within the Child Mind Institute that develops and builds technologies to help diagnose, assess, monitor, and improve mental health.

Current initiatives include:

  • Devices that users wear to monitor and receive feedback about behaviors related to their mental health.
  • Smartphone apps that provide a convenient means of extending therapies from the clinic to the home.
  • A mental health database that contains questions from over 80 mental health questionnaires, all of the symptoms from diagnostic psychiatry manuals such as the DSM-5, and information about technologies related to mental health.
  • Voice analysis as it offers insight into mental health, from low-level voice features to high-level syntax and semantics of speech.
