Sutter Health adopts new digital mental health tool for teens and young adults

Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health is adopting GetWell Loop, a virtual resource designed to help people aged 12 to 26 build resilience and manage their mental health.

GetWell Loop will be used on Scout by Sutter Health, a virtual platform that allows clinicians to perform weekly mental health checkups with patients. Scout by Sutter first went live on Get Well's platform in May 2020, according to a Dec. 6 Get Well news release.

"The growing mental health crisis among America's youth is a critical issue in our society that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, algorithmic bias and social media, and rising violence in our communities," LouAnn Bala, vice president of content strategy and clinical programs at Get Well, said. "This is the first GetWell Loop program in the youth behavioral health space, and we're excited to work with Sutter Health to address a pressing issue in an actionable way."
