In the UK, over 10 million people will need mental health support as a direct consequence of Covid-19. Yet one in five people dealing with mental illness say their needs are going unmet.
Left unchecked, the mental health crisis could cost the global economy $16T between 2010 and 2030 !!

What is the event about?
In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the mental health crisis has worsened around the globe. To help address the surge in demand, companies are using technology to ensure people’s wellbeing. 
Is technology the solution to mental health? What is the right balance? What does the future of mental health look like? What are potential careers in this field?
Join us on Monday, November 23rd 7pm for a power-packed discussion about the innovation and future of mental health with our high-profile panelists.
