A Digital Therapeutic for People with Schizophrenia
Pear Therapeutics - Design Lead - May 2020

How might we create a mobile app (digital therapeutic) to help people with schizophrenia cope with their symptoms and improve their lives? This sounded like an incredible opportunity so I jumped at the chance to take on this challenge and help an underserved population.

What I Can Share

As the sole designer on this project, my responsibilities included running the user research, kicking off brainstorming sessions, creating lo and hi-fidelity designs, building prototypes, leading the usability testing, and then collaborating with all the various members of the team to ensure the designs became reality.

I am a big believer in the power of iteration and collaboration. The input from team members, other designers, users in usability studies, and eventually data from real users, is critical to crafting the best product. The positive results we saw speak directly to a strong design process.
