Conference Summary

Mental ill health is prevalent, and citizens need more support to prevent mental ill health as well as supporting their treatment and management of their mental health and wellbeing. With traditional services being under pressure, there is a need for more research to investigate the use of digital technologies to support the mental health and wellbeing of people.

However, we must also bear in mind that the implementation of digital technologies cannot solve all our problems. Nevertheless, digital technologies often come with benefits such as being somewhat sustainable, ubiquitous and being accessible 24/7. This conference is looking to attract novel work involving digital mental health interventions, e.g. mental healthcare apps, chatbots, web apps, wearables, sensors, and VR/AR tools to improve a person’s mental health and wellbeing.

We also want to attract data science, machine learning and AI research that is applied to the mental health domain – especially given the wealth of real-world mental health data that is available, which can provide new knowledge discoveries and insights.

The conference will feature keynotes and talks from leading academic researchers and service providers. There will be conference proceedings and a likely special issue in a Journal. We hope to see you in Belfast.
