Our Learning Mental Health System

Our Learning Mental Health System (LMHS) proposes a multi-level collaboration among a set of patients, providers, researchers, and health policymakers within a coordinated and integrated data flow to improve care and deliver individualized treatment for each patient. The data acquisition is initiated through multiple patient-clinician interactions providing longitudinal biopsychosocial data to the main clinical research data frame. Patient data is gathered by advanced technology, which is processed in an integrated data inter-frame through multiple encounters by a research team. An evidence repository will provide a continuous flow of information in real-time to optimize decision-making on all levels of the LMHS.

Glossary

  1. Cognition– the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and sensory input

  2. Emotion– a physiological brain response that corresponds to sensations of pleasure (i.e. positive valence emotions) or pain (i.e. negative valence emotions)

  3. Emotional Processing– a series of cognitive functions that includes registration, identification, contextual understanding, leading to a decrease in the intensity of the experienced emotion

  4. Attention- the ability to selectively choose relevant sensory stimuli while disregarding irrelevant sensory stimuli

  5. Motivation– what initiates, guides, directs, and maintains goal-directed behavior

  6. Memory– the ability to encode, store, recall, and retrieve information

  7. Knowledge acquisition– the ability to memorize discrete factual information

  8. Working memory– the ability to temporarily memorize information in order to internally manipulate, organize, and prioritize that information

  9. Executive functioning– a set of mental skills that include working memory, flexible thinking, and self-control (or impulse control)

  10. Impulse control– the ability to use cognitive processes such as judgment, logical reasoning, and problem solving prior to acting on a desired behavior

  11. Judgment and evaluation– the ability to form values and preferences that are used to inform a decision-making process

  12. Logical Reasoning– the ability to make inferences and draw conclusions based on knowledge as well as an evaluation of relationships between different aspects of a situation

  13. Problem Solving– the ability to identify a deficiency, discrepancy, or error and use logical reasoning to form a plan or strategy to correct the deficiency, discrepancy, or error

  14. Decision Making– the process of identifying and choosing alternatives based on one’s own values, preferences and beliefs

  15. Behavior– A motor (muscle) response 

  16. Simple Behavior– A direct motor response to a sensory stimulus

  17. Complex Behavior– A motor response through a set of decision making processes made possible through cognition and emotional processing

  18. Affect– Behavioral expression of emotion

  19. Emotional Valence– Positive (pleasurable) or negative (noxious) emotion

  20. Positive (valence) Affect– Behavioral expressions of positive emotion

  21. Negative (valence) Affect– Behavioral expressions of negative emotion

  22. Reward– A physiological response to a stimulus, producing a pleasurable sensation

  23. Punishment– A physiological response to a stimulus, producing a painful sensation; or a behavioral act whose intention is to induce negative emotion

  24. Emotion Regulation– The ability to adjust, control, and dampen the intensity of an emotion in order to adapt to a situation.

We envision a world in which no individual endures needless suffering due to anxiety and depression.
