BRiTE Center

Dedicated to improving behavioral health through technology

Mental illness affects all people, regardless of age, race, location, or nationality and is an incredible burden to individuals, families, employers, and society. In the face of this burden, cutting-edge technologies are enabling us to re-invent how we treat mental illness.

Housed at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine, the Behavioral Research in Technology and Engineering (BRiTE) Center brings together a diverse group of researchers, clinicians, technologists, and mental health advocates with a common goal of improving the lives of those suffering with mental illness, their families, and communities. Harnessing the Pacific Northwest’s innovative spirit, we work with industry, healthcare systems large and small, and individuals invested in developing creative technologies to improve population mental health, in our lifetime.
