Mental health care is recognizing the potential of and adopting technology. Important societal trends - rising costs of care, shrinking budgets, and patients’ explicit desire for more engagement and self determination-, ask for transformation of mental health care. A new frontier has opened which is completely changing the mental health care environment. Technological and social innovation will help mental health care to be fit for the future.

TU/e, Tilburg University and GGZ Eindhoven are taking on this challenge and are therefore starting a structural partnership. The goal is to strengthen and grow the bilateral collaborations between these parties and join forces in improving mental health care.

This research meet of the Center for Humans and Technology, organized together with GGZ Eindhoven and Tranzo (TiU) will feature inspiring presentations on innovative applications of technology in the domain of mental health. Covering topics ranging from dementia care, VR treatment and serious gaming to healing environments, this afternoon will bring you new insights on the latest developments towards effective, sustainable and personalized care.
