Young people experimenting with AI for mental health advice

Axios Phoenix

Arizona in 2020 said they were satisfied with the availability of mental health providers.

Students were the least satisfied group — with 23% saying there were enough resources.

Between the lines: Tech and mental health professionals worry about negative or unintended consequences such as inconsistent advice, data security challenges and a general lack of human contact.

“I think the challenge becomes that [high school students] use AI not necessarily as a substitute for school psychologists, but as a substitute for relationships in general,” Arizona Association of School Psychologists president Matthew Moix says.
