Tomorrow’s World Today: new frontiers in mental health
How is our technologically enabled, globalised and digital society changing our understanding of mental health and wellbeing? Can we predict what a society with good mental health will look like in 10, 20 or 50 years’ time? Is there evidence that we are adapting and developing new attitudes, strategies and technologies for looking after our mental wellbeing? Or is our uncertain, unequal and fast changing world putting an intolerable strain on our mental wellbeing? What are the necessary ingredients for developing and maintaining a healthy, connected mind throughout our lives?
Expect to be stimulated, engaged and challenged as we examine the changing state of mental health, consider the research evidence, and put technology to the test.
This is a free conference, organised by VHS, Support in Mind Scotland and the Open University in Scotland.
Conference Chair is Martyn Evans, CEO of Carnegie UK Trust.
Keynote speakers include Dr Stuart Ritchie, Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, Edinburgh University.
