Bridgeway Behavioral Health contracted the Missouri Institute of Mental Health to create a mobile application to support their adolescent substance abuse prevention program. MIMH conducted focus groups with both Bridgeway staff and their clients in order to inform the development of the app’s underlying curriculum. The app uses an innovative mix of evidence-based techniques and interactive gameplay to promote knowledge and positive health outcomes with regards to substance abuse.
