The conference was organised and supported by the MENHIR project - ‘Mental health monitoring through interactive conversations’ (funded by H2020 EU research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 823907). This conference was also sponsored by the HSC R&D office in Northern Ireland.

Mental ill health is prevalent, and citizens need more support to prevent mental ill health as well as supporting their treatment and management of their mental health and wellbeing. With traditional services being under pressure, there is a need for more research to investigate the use of digital technologies to support the mental health and wellbeing of people. However, we must also bear in mind that the implementation of digital technologies cannot solve all our problems. Nevertheless, digital technologies often come with benefits such as being somewhat sustainable, ubiquitous and being accessible 24/7. This conference attracted novel work involving digital mental health interventions, (e.g. mental healthcare apps, chatbots, web apps, wearables, sensors, and VR tools to improve a person’s mental health and wellbeing) and mental health data science/AI.
