The Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) is hosting an event to showcase a wide range of digital technology in mental health. This will provide examples of digital innovation across topics such as diagnosis, physical health, early intervention, children and young people, perinatal, telehealth and effective use of resources.
We invite you to attend if you commission or provide mental health services, you are a clinician who wants to include digital innovations in their practice, or are an organisation that represents people with lived experience who are interested in digital innovations.
