Description

Digital Mental Health - Does it work?

As digital mental health continues to climb our national agenda, what do the different key stakeholders have to say? Featuring national leaders, clinicians and start-ups and our Digital Mental Health event will discuss the efficacy and safety of digital mental health solutions and how might we better use data to deliver improved patient outcomes.

As part of the Digital Catapult’s Festival of Digital Health, our informal evening meetup will be chaired by Nicky Runeckles (Founding Director at Monticola Consulting) with short talks from key stakeholders in mental health including: Claire Murdoch - National Mental Health Director for NHS England, Dr James Woollard - Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and Senior Clinical Fellow in Mental Health, Silja Litvin - CEO and Founder of PsycApps and Tempest van Schaik - Lead Scientist and Engineer at Ctrl Group

Context

With a quarter of adults diagnosed with at least one mental health problem, this is a growing issue. Wearables, virtual reality, predictorlytics and remote consultations are all playing a role in driving new approaches to mental health. How can digital technology begin to alleviate the burden? Can new technology be used to cater to those individuals currently underserved? And what are the new risks and concerns we need to be aware of?

The event discussion will be framed around the following 3 “challenge statements”

  • How can we make sure that mental health apps are safe and effective?

  • How do we access and capture the apps’data and clinical impact in a crisis scenario?

  • How should research designs adapt to better measure the efficacy and safety of digital interventions?

Thank you Jacqui Jedrzejewski, Mental Health Lead and Clinical Assurance for Digital Urgent Care at NHS England for defining these.
