Breakfast & Learn | Tecnology and mental health in rural areas


09:00 h

Did you know that technology can play a key role in providing access to mental health treatment to populations living in rural areas?

With the aim of getting to know specific projects and initiatives based on digital technology that are being carried out in areas far from urban centres and that provide a response to one or more mental health problems, we are organising the 18th Breakfast & Learn of the TECSAM Network on Wednesday 5 May at 9am.

This virtual meeting, entitled "AI and mental health in rural areas: success stories in Asturias", aims to be a space to deepen in the development and implementation of technological solutions with a user-centred approach and oriented to the promotion and prevention of mental health or treatment of mental disorders.

On this occasion, the session will be led by Ignacio Pedrosa, from the Knowledge and Human Factor Unit of the CTIC Technology Centre, who will explain some success stories of the introduction of solutions based on artificial intelligence in rural health areas, specifically in Asturias.
