Smarter Self ™

Our Educational System is in Crisis

Each year, approximately 24,000 college students attempt suicide while 1,100 students succeed in their attempt, making suicide the second-leading cause of death among U.S. college students.

20% – 30% of adolescents report symptoms of depression. While depression once was considered an “adult” affliction, the mean age of onset today is 15. Almost 9% of high school students have attempted suicide in the past year.

Smarter Self™ supports users 24/7/365 because when the school year ends we all continue to live in a tumultuous world. Educator sessions follow the school year with detailed downloadable materials and corresponding videos for students, but Smarter Self streams to users year round.

The pandemic-fueled rise in trauma, depression, and anxiety among students and school staff, combined with a lack of mental health supports, means schools will be dealing with COVID-19’s fallout for years to come.

You know, we’d go into school, there’d be this student who discovered something. There’ll be a colleague who just says something. We were getting a lot of what we needed, social interaction, some kind of recognition for what we did. There’s so much going on that we might not be getting what we need for our mental health.

Behavioral Health Screenings

Every School District and University has a staff of behavioral and mental health professionals. They know their student population and what they screen for student by student.

Their challenge is insufficient staffing. With unlimited budgets, the shortage of mental health professionals is so severe, they could not adequately staff to service every student in need.

Smarter Self is a Force Multiplier

Built into the Smarter Self Engagement Platform is the capability to do Custom Student Screening. The Behavioral and Mental Health Staff can supplement SBIRT, GAD-9, PHQ2, and PHQ9 protocols with their own.

They can do this through their Smarter Self Dashboard or they can have 360 build it for them. Smarter Self gives them the ability to literally reach out to every single student in their system.

Legislators like State Senator Joe Vitale (D-Middlesex) have been trying for years to implement screenings like SBIRT. 360’s engagement platform can perform initial screenings to allow the precious live resources time to focus on students with the greatest need.

Utilizing proven behavioral engagement methods, our Smarter Self Concierge™ connects with your administrators, faculty, staff, and students to deliver the tools and skills required to navigate the stresses created by Covid-19 in our educational system and students’ formative years.

BehavioralRx ™  has proven to positively impact reality and data, not just monitor or report on it. We achieve this by becoming a partner and supporter in a person’s day-to-day lifestyle. No two people are identical when viewed from a combined emotional, behavioral, physical, and metabolic perspective. With this guiding principle in mind, our Smarter Self Concierge™ precisely treats each person as a unique individual.

The scientific methods and algorithms behind BehavioralRx ™ have produced significant evidence-based improvements around the world in managed long-term care, transitions of care, and gaps in care for patients with chronic and highly complex conditions. Using the knowledge and data we accumulated over decades we created a program designed specifically to support everyone involved in our educational system.
