Philadelphia, mental health orgs to pilot screening tablet kiosk

By | August 4, 2014

The kiosk offers users a tablet on which they answer survey questions about their mental state, but it doesn’t take biometric readings.


Users also have the option to enter in demographic information before they take the screening. Demographics include age, gender, partnership status, race, ethnicity group, and whether or not they’ve had behavioral health treatment in the past. When users are finished with the survey, the kiosk provides them with resources to seek additional help, including 24-hour hotlines, like a suicide prevention line, peer support lines, family support lines, in addition to a link to a website that has all the behavioral health treatment providers in the city.
