Congress 2022


About the Congress

eMHIC is a group of global leaders and subject matter experts, collaborating and sharing knowledge on all topics related to eMental health and addiction, to support and improve mental health and addiction outcomes for all populations. You can click here to find out more.

Every year eMHIC hosts an interactive event attended in-person and live-streamed globally. This a high-energy day packed with local and international keynote addresses, interactive panel discussions and event-wide collaboration.

An unparalleled line up of local and international speakers will share experiences, lessons and insights from their respective jurisdictions, continuing to cultivate a strong culture of global collaboration within the eMental health industry. The Congress will showcase the latest ground-breaking developments in eMental health innovation, thought leadership and strategy, and champion the participation of lived experience representatives.

Congress is an open event able to attended by anyone, however we can guarantee that thought leaders and subject matter experts from around the world will be in attendance, both online and in person. This includes people working from the following key industry groups, and more:

  • Policy and Strategy
  • Product Innovation
  • Lived Experience
  • Healthcare Workforce
  • Evidence Creation/Research

Absolutely! eMHIC is all about collaboration and so a key focus of the Congress is allowing all participants the opportunity to connect and network with their colleagues from around the world. We have a number of international attendees and delegations, and dedicated time to network and meet your eMental health peers from all over the globe. It is the best place to be for networking and collaboration, as we have all of the leaders of eMental health in one place. 

Our online attendees are also able to network with other online attendees through our customised event platform – this includes a live chat, more intimate networking rooms, online forums, and a number of fun and interactive activities. 

Finally, all attendees of the Congress 2022 are invited to join the closed Facebook group in order to connect with other attendees and discuss all things eMental health.

We are constantly updating the website to showcase more details to attendees and our eMHIC community. The best place to catch the latest information will be the website, or of course your inbox one you’re registered, and we also recommend following us on LinkedIn and Twitter to ensure you don’t miss any updates!

Every year eMHIC acknowledges one award recipient from each member country to receive a country-specific Innovation Leadership award in eMental Health. The award is given either to an organization or person/s who have made an exceptional contribution to the eMental Health domain by demonstrating noteworthy leadership to implement eMental Health solutions at scale.

This year for the first time, award nominations are open to the public. If you think you know of an exemplary leader in eMental health, or if you are one  yourself, you can click here to nominate your chosen person for the International Leadership Awards.

We welcome sponsorship for the eMental Health International Congress, and its a great opportunity to get your brand or organisation in front of the world leaders of eMental health, both online and in person. 

Please email us at congress @emhicglobal.com to discuss opportunities.

Accessing the Congress

As the Congress is held in Auckland, New Zealand, it runs in line with the NZDT timezone.

Congress is livestreamed for its entirety, and further, all sessions are recorded and able to be viewed at later date’s so you won’t miss a second of the action. Q&A sessions and chatting with other participants will be limited to live viewing, however you will be able to catch up on others’ conversations and questions asked through our customised event app.

All ticket holders will be granted access to all Congress 2022 content for 10 months following the event. That means you can revisit any presentations and panel discussions, and view other comments and interactions from online attendees well after the event finishes.

Day One of Congress is an hybrid event, meaning it is in person for those who can make it but will also be live streamed globally for those who can’t or would prefer not to be there in person. Day Two is online only, and all ticket types will be able to access the online platform at all times during Congress.

Online access to Congress will be hosted through our customised event app. If you were a part of Congress 2021, you will be familiar with the platform! 

You will be sent information about logging in and accessing the event platform closer to the event day with the link to access the Congress. If you have any issues accessing the event platform, email congress@emhicglobal.com and a member of the eMHIC team will assist you.
