The SAGE, A Scientifically Validated Mental Health Diagnostic Screener, is Now Available Online for the General Public

Even before the pandemic, Americans were suffering from mental illness at increasing rates while the number of psychiatrists in the US keeps declining. To improve direct access to affordable mental health services, TeleSage has developed and released the SAGE, a fully validated, mental health diagnostic screener that yields a detailed report. Dr. Benjamin B. Brodey, CEO of TeleSage, says: “The SAGE is the mental health equivalent of a set of laboratory tests in primary care, but the SAGE can be taken anonymously by the client from the comfort of their home.”

The SAGE has been used since 2018 at major research universities and by mental health clinicians worldwide. Dr. Brodey says: “The SAGE has been available on a ‘prescription’ basis. We need an ‘over-the-counter’ solution.”

The SAGE efficiently evaluates up to 400 symptoms of mental illness and 24 of the most common mental health diagnoses in just 5 to 15 minutes using AI-driven branching algorithms. Users receive a detailed report summarizing the client’s symptoms and likely mental health diagnoses. The SAGE can be taken on any device that connects to the internet without needing to download software or an app.

Because mental disorders are still stigmatized, TeleSage has made its public SAGE system completely anonymous. Users can even permanently delete their report from the system. SAGE users can share their report with a new clinician or get a second opinion. Dr. Brodey says: “We need to lower the barriers that prevent people from getting the help they need. It can be difficult to express your feelings to a clinician and even more difficult to know which symptoms might be most significant. The SAGE can act as an intermediary between the client and clinician.”

According to Benjamin B. Brodey MD, MPH, “Our mental health delivery system is completely unprepared for the unprecedented mental health crisis that we are currently experiencing. Online mental health decision support tools, such as the SAGE, will both empower clients to get the help they need and also reduce clinician burdens.”
