This event will hear thought-leaders in Children’s mental health, and front line innovators dealing with the issues caused by the use of digital technology, as well as the benefits generated from doing so.
The latest Government green paper will be examined, and hear how two specialist NHS Trusts are using digital techniques to improve the mental wellbeing of children and young people.
During the afternoon sessions, delegates will be split into 3 parallel streams; the first covering digital tools that clinicians can use with their patients, the second explaining digital tools that children and young people can use on their own to manage or improve their mental health, and the third looking at the academic evidence being generated on this topic.
This event will conclude with interactive workshops, enabling delegates to try out the digital tools for themselves, and discuss the pros and cons of their use with the entrepreneurs who have created them.
You may have the opportunity to influence the further development of these tools and stimulate ideas to create products of your own.
