The eMEN project, made possible by Inttereg NWE, is working to unlock the power of technology to improve Europe's mental health. Our launch conference will look at how we can increase the uptake of e-mental health and reduce the levels of unmet needs within mental healthcare.
The event takes place from 10 am till 5 pm and will feature some interesting keynote speakers who will demonstrate several useful case studies. The following topics will be dealt with (amongst others):
- Why eMEN? There is an increase in mental health needs in Europe; a solution for this might be found in e-mental healthcare. What are the challenges in putting e-mental health technology into practice? eMEN aims to provide an answer to these questions.
- What are we going to do to deal with these challenges? I.a. establish a collaborative platform for deployment, use pilots to show how to successfully develop, etc.
- Introduction into e-mental health: what it is, what it looks like, for whom, advantages, etc. ...
- Towards integrated care: linking wearables with e-mental health
- Privacy and ethical questions (automation, artificial intelligence, etc. ...)
- Policy: how governments can facilitate the development of e-mental health in a proper and safe manner
