We’ll be joined by a range of inspiring industry voices from a range of backgrounds, who’ll not only be sharing their own personal experiences, but helping us to think about:
- How technology can impact our mental health, happiness and productivity in the workplace and life in general - the risks and the benefits
- The deal with evidence-based (and non-evidence based) mental health apps / platforms
- Successful navigation of the mental health tech market, given the range of apps and platforms increasingly available
- Employer recognition of employee needs for mental health support - and potential benefits of providing this using technology
- How mental health charities are embracing technology
We’ll be joined by:
