On 8 September 2015 The King’s Fund held a conference on increasing access to mental health care.
They have shared highlights from the conference on their website, including a session from MindTech Healthcare and National Institute for Health Research on using digital technology to increase access to mental health care.
The session considered evidence around the use and impact of video calling, online peer support, text messaging and apps.
It highlighted the ways in which digital tools and technology can provide more flexibility, control and choice to people accessing mental health care.
The presenters concluded by considering what the future should look like and how we can get there.
A video of the session, and powerpoint of the slides, have been uploaded to the King’s Fund website, along with other presentations from the day. You can access them here.
