Event Information

Using technology and especially internet in mental health service provision and delivery has been a growing field, boosted especially by the COVID-19 pandemic. Avatars were developed to train mental health specialists learn diagnose symptoms of psychiatric conditions, apps have been launched to monitor and change symptoms of common mental health concerns like stress and depression. However, how much, and what do we really know about when and how eHealth interventions work when delivered online?

In this workshop, Zsofia Szlamka, PhD candidate in psychology at King's College London, will present some existing directions in eHealth-driven mental health strategies, and evidence about the extent to which they work. She will touch on the disadvantages and advantages of therapy delivered online, and what the future may hold in this space.
