eMental Health Leadership Exchange

Hosted by eMHIC and the Mental Health Commission of Canada

This match will explore the learnings from international developments in the adoption of eMental Health (eMH) solutions Post-Pandemic across the IIMHL/IIDL member countries. We know, that if implemented well, eMH solutions can empower individuals to be active participants in their own care, while providing service providers the tools for enhanced care alongside the usual mental health care provision. eMH can remove barriers and bring services to excluded communities and can ensure people living with mental health problems or illnesses access the help they need when and where they need it. This match will also explore issues such as sporadic funding, lack of eMH standards, strategy, frameworks and successes and challenges from each country, jurisdictions and organisation.

Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th October 2022
