The Digital Psychiatrist



In this workshop, we will explore the capabilities and limitations of existing and future potential digital technologies for mental health support and resilience building. Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to interact with technology so that they can experience its impact. Workshop leaders will facilitate discussions on how to locate the right digital solutions for the right problems from a practitioner perspective. The workshop will also emphasize the importance of placing service users at the centre of their own care plan.  The workshop will stimulate discussions on how to modernise mental health services by utilising behavioural change models, including product demonstrations by Touchkin co-founders.
