About

The Digital Mental Health Project was founded during a late 2014 sabbatical where we were exploring how digital technology is being used in the mental health field, aka MentalTech. Over time it has evolved from that mapping of the space to a company database to a series of conference talks to a digital mental health blog to digital mental health event participation to an advisory practice to a digital mental health literacy series.

Our intention is to produce educational experiences that enable a “responsible” adoption of  MentalTech.
 
Our work is focused on aiding consumers & caregivers, implementors, founders and funders in this space.   

Our projects includes:

  1. The StressTech & MentalTech Literacy Series, offer education on digital mental health options, their benefits and risks, and how to engage the healthcare system in their use, in presentation, workshop, course and article formats.

  2. The Digital Stress Management Survey, an ongoing survey measuring the degree to which mentaltech is being used, and also why not. Please participate and spread word of it in your network. We share the results with participants.

  3. Advisory & Consulting Services which include:
    1. landscape & market category analyses,
    2. partnership assessments
    3. go-to-market plans,
    4. customer technographic research.
