Opportunities in Digital Creativity and Mental Health

10:00am, Tue 22nd September 2020

Online

After months of lockdown, media reports have highlighted the impact recent events have had on mental health - especially in younger age groups - but also the new opportunities presented by emerging digital technologies. From serious games to triage diagnostics, digital tools look to have an increasingly significant role to play in supporting mental wellbeing.

This Academics Disassembled session, led by DC Labs under the Creativity theme, brings a round up of interesting research that is underway or recently completed. This will be an opportunity for researchers interested in the interface between digital tech and mental health to learn about ongoing research and resources at York, form interdisciplinary connections and discuss opportunities for future research and funding.
