New Digital-First Mental Health Strategies From The Global South
Internet and digital technologies like social media, on-line games, multimedia and mobile phones could be a powerful strategy for the delivery of mental health services in low-resource settings. The Global South has been struggling with scarcity of financial resources. In such scenario, digital strategies for mental health should go beyond the Covid-19 pandemic. This session will assess the digital technologies and mental health strategies being implemented in The Global South. Chhatra Karki, founding President of Nepal Forum of Science Journalists will moderate a panel of scientists to show that solutions to this global problem can come from the developing world as well, from using GoogleAds to getting help for vulnerable people to cope with mental health problems.
