An Elfie* Debate - Can research really tell you how to make a good mental health app? #mindtech15
*get the pun ‘healthy’
On the eve of the Mindtech Symposium 2015, we warmly invite you to a short, sharp and lively debate brought to you by MindTech, mHabitat and The Mental Elf. Following the debate, you can join us for a meal, based on the wonderful social care curry club - with a festive menu, research and elves added into the mix! Attending the debate is free and refreshments will be provided. Everyone will pay for their own meal which is £15.99 for two courses - check the menu for tasty choices.
Our evening event is an opportunity to connect, network, learn and help us answer a critical question in advance of the main event the following day. This event is open to all (you don’t have to be registered for the main event the following day).
