Abstract

With psychiatric conditions like depression now the leading global causing of disability, the need for innovative solutions is apparent. The promise of mental health care delivered through technology (eMentalHealth) to provide personalized care offers a promising solution that has galvanized interest worldwide. However, in order to ensure that eMentalHealth is scalable and sustainable, service delivery and health and social care policies need to be integrated into the design of technology interventions. This will require new forms of interdisciplinary collaborations that we hope to foster in this symposium. Thus, in this fourth in our series of Symposia on Computing and Mental Health, the focus will beon the intersection of the communities innovating in this space: patients, designers, data scientists, clinicians, researchers, computer scientists, developers, and entrepreneurs guided by core medical ethical principles including respect for persons, beneficence, and justice. Our aim is thus to enable the vision of better mental health through ethical innovation powered by the right collaborations.
