Digital Outreach for Obtaining Resources & Skills (DOORS) is a psychosocial intervention program that teaches digital literacy. Access to smartphones offers access to novel means and portals of care. Utilizing available information, tools, and resources, however, requires adopting digital skills and confidence.
DOORS provides participants with the skillset and encouragement to navigate smartphones and benefit from their utility. Through continuing education and support, we help our participants achieve access to care through technology.
How it Works
The DOORS curriculum includes eight topical lessons that highlight smartphone utilities and skills. Each session engages group learning and problem solving to teach participants a new smartphone skill immediately useful and applicable to daily life.
Session activities encourage participants to use their own phone and enact learned techniques. The curriculum and lesson plans serve as a guiding framework for sessions. Group interests and comfort levels with technology influence the content and presentation of lessons.

COVID-19 has made it increasingly difficult to access mental health care and treatment.
In the absence of in-person support, digital literacy is essential for patients to utilize telehealth and other online resources. The content of the DOORS curriculum can be adapted to meet these new demands and disseminate important news and information related to the coronavirus.
