AI chatbots and mental health apps

In Spring 2019, I took a Social Informatics course from Dr. Colin Rhinesmith.  During the class, I focused my research mostly on mental healthcare apps and LGBTQ mental healthcare needs.  This generated what I hope others find to be a helpful bibliography.  Please be aware that this bibliography was generated by Zotero and I have not made edits to it.

Bibliography: chatbots and other mental health apps
