Mental Health Webinar Series
How the NHS is using digital technology to support people’s mental health
11 Feb 2021
12:30 - 13:30 GMT
The COVID-19 pandemic is having far-reaching social, economic and political repercussions across the globe. Alongside the impacts on people’s physical health, it can also have profound effects on mental health and wellbeing, increasing anxiety, stress and depression. The exacerbation of pre-existing mental health issues, the greater impact on more vulnerable groups, and difficulties in accessing support and services all need to be urgently considered. Prevention and positive mental health promotion, as well as targeted support, are fundamental.
This webinar will set out examples of initiatives which have been developed to meet mental health needs in relation to COVID-19, and provide an opportunity for attendees to discuss and exchange good practices and ideas on mental health promotion at regional and national level, as well as to raise any issues they are facing. It builds on good practices already identified during a recent webinars in our mental health series, and will include a focus on the use of digital tools and on building community resilience.
