Project Details


Technology has dramatically affected almost every aspect of our lives, which is not surprising given it can greatly impact our efficiency and effectiveness. Unfortunately, the field of mental health has lagged behind and has largely failed to substantially incorporate technological innovations. This lecture will discuss some of the reasons for the slow adoption of technology and discuss promising new techniques and efforts using technology that reduce the huge public health burdens posed by anxiety, depression and suicide. When discussing new techniques, Distinguished Professor Schmidt will highlight factors that cut across anxiety, depression, and suicide, and thus, which need to be targeted by prevention interventions that utilise technology.
