As the field embraces technology-delivered interventions, we must keep in mind that the universe of apps is continuously expanding and very few apps have associated scientific evidence.[xxvi] There are possible risks associated with app-based smartphone interventions, including the ease with which youth may access potentially ineffective or even harmful interventions. MentorHub only partners with evidence-based apps. To find our partners, we rely on experimental findings that have been published in peer-reviewed journal articles. We also use resources like PsyberGuide.org and Common Sense Media, which have simplified the process of selecting appropriate, evidence-based apps.
