On March 13, Gina Basteri, Erin Gadbois and Lisa Macchi presented to a packed room at the Department of Mental Health’s Success Fest in Worcester. Young adults, parents, peers and staff listened, eager to learn about how technology could be used as a resource to create opportunities to enhance support for young adults. Vinfen’s presentation Boost Success with a Tech Toolbox: Using Your Phone and Apps to Support Success discussed the use of technology in achieving goals and successful use of an App which is part of the Plymouth Integration Project.
The highlight of the presentation was when Cloe Rickley-Taylor and Dylan Anders, App Users Extraordinaire, talked about using the Vinfen Health and Wellness App and their personal successes. Cloe shared how the app helped her get her life on track and establish a routine which is helping her work toward finding employment. Dylan discussed how the app helped him think about how he was feeling each day and learn how to take better care of himself in life to help support his goals.
