Electronic Therapy
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), more than 66 million Americans live with mental illness. Mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect mood, thinking and behavior. While treatment can be effective, access to care is a problem. NAMI estimates that 60 percent of adults with a mental health condition didn't receive mental health services in the previous year. However, there may be a new solution. The development of behavioral intervention technologies, such as mobile apps and online programs, is expanding mental health resources for patients. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, psychologist Dr. Craig Sawchuk joins the program to discuss the use of electronic therapy for mental health conditions. Also on the program, Dr. Justin Kreuter, medical director of the Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Program, shares the importance of blood donation and the need for cultivating a new generation of donors. And primary care physician Dr. Kathy MacLaughlin will cover the importance of cervical cancer screening and the HPV vaccine for prevention of cervical cancer.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, endocrinologist Dr. John C.

Patterson will cover treatment and prevention of kidney stones. Also on the program, colorectal surgeon Dr. Robert Cima will explain enhanced recovery after surgery a technique that helps patients return home more quickly after an operation.
