"Therapy is a tried-and-true treatment for what ails our minds, but it hasn’t caught up with medicine in tracking the data needed to make patients better. Could simple surveys help change that?" wrote Erin Anderseen for a piece titled "Rethinking therapy: How 45 questions can revolutionize mental health care in Canada," published April 7.
