Hope for School Behavioral Health

Resiliency Technologies is honored to serve as a technology partner for the John H. Magill SC School Behavioral Health Academy (SBHA) at University of South Carolina Columbia, Department of Psychology.

In addition, the Sharpen system and evidence-based library of films, psychoeducational modules and interventions will be incorporated to inform the AI models that are being developed in partnership with SBHA and USC's AI Institute, led by Dr. Amit Sheth.
