Forum Panel – 75mn

In no area of global health is the gap between need and treatment greater than mental health and this is even more true of digital mental health, where in recent years there has been an explosion of new technologies for assessment, support and treatment. Properly managed, these technologies hold the promise of a revolution in the approach to mental health care delivery.

The next five years will see many of these new approaches come to maturity, with robust evidence of cost- effectiveness. The Mental Health and Digital Technology forum panel will evaluate how real impact depends on whether these isolated tools can be brought together into coherent pathways and packages of care.
