This bill would create new safeguards and patient protections governing the use of AI in mental health services.
“With the rise of telehealth and other technology changes in the delivery of behavioral health care, the prospect of generative AI use in therapy settings is no longer just the stuff of science-fiction novels,” said sponsor Rep. Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury). “We need to ensure that the rights of patients are always protected and that any AI use is fully disclosed and transparent. This bill would create those important safeguards and ensure we stay ahead of the curve.”
