[Registration Closed] (Webinar) Co-hosted by Health and Global Policy Institute (HGPI) and the Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine’s Frontier & International Psychiatry Laboratory- The Global Expert Meeting on “Setting a Direction for Promoting Effective Digital Technology Utilization From the Perspectives of Those Most Affected” (December 20, 2022)

HGPI will hold “Setting a Direction for Promoting Effective Digital Technology Utilization From the Perspectives of Those Most Affected.” This global expert meeting is co-hosted by the Frontier & International Psychiatry Laboratory of the Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine and HGPI with the cooperation from Johns Hopkins University.

The focus of this global expert meeting will be to examine how to best utilize digital technology, a topic which has attracted growing expectations in the field of mental health policy. We will bring together prominent members of the academic community and opinion leaders from Japan and abroad representing industry, Government, academia, and civil society to discuss issues and future prospects for this topic under the three themes of “evidence,” “accessibility,” and “data.” In our capacity as a health policy think-tank, HGPI will compile this series of discussions into policy recommendations which we will then disseminate to policy makers with the objective of contributing to progress in domestic mental health policy.
