Adhere.ly is a web-based platform to help therapists engage their clients in practicing therapeutic skills during and between sessions. Adhere.ly can be freely accessed at adhere.ly.
We are currently conducting a small-scale feasibility trial of Adhere.ly with therapists and youth clients in mental health settings in the community.
English-speaking, mental health therapists who have at least a master’s degree in social work, counseling, clinical psychology, or related field; carry active child mental health treatment caseloads; and have a laptop, tablet, or smartphone with internet access.
English-speaking youth ages 7-17 years with clinically elevated anxiety and depression; have a laptop, tablet, or smartphone with internet access; and is seeking treatment with a participating therapist.
If you are a therapist who sees youth with anxiety/depression and are interested in learning more about the trial, please contact Janelle Barrera at email@example.com or (813) 644-2674.
We are currently expanding Adhere.ly for use with adult clients and are conducting focus groups with adults who have received therapy to get input on new features and exercises.

In collaboration with investigators at the Medical University of South Carolina we are assessing the capability of text-based deep learning models for phenotyping of suicidal behavior and for the prediction of suicide attempts and suicide death from past clinical text and Electronic Health Record data.
In collaboration with investigators at the University of Arizona, Medical University of South Carolina, and University of North Texas, we developed and evaluated CBT-Iweb, a web-based provider training for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy of Insomnia (CBT-I). CBT-I is the gold standard non-pharmacological treatment for Insomnia. The training can be freely accessed at CBTIweb.org.
