SAN FRANCISCO - Here in the technology epicenter of the world, developers
are increasingly writing code and launching products to try to disrupt yet
another field: mental health.

transportation and lodging, they've largely steered clear of mental health
treatment. Now, however, with an influx of funding, companies are revamping
pills with digital sensors, designing virtual reality worlds to treat
addiction and other conditions, and building chatbots for interactive
therapy.
