From July 2-5th 2019, the Belgian partners from Thomas More University of Applied Sciences attended the European Congress of Psychology taking place in Moscow, Russia. The main theme of the conference was ‘Psychology: creating the future together’ with different thematic tracks such as Psychology and Health and Psychology and Digital Future. These topics fit perfectly within the eMEN project on how technological applications can be used to improve mental healthcare.
Eva Van Assche presented the eMEN project and the implementation study taking place in Belgium in which patients with depression use the e-mental health application Moodbuster in addition to treatment as usual. Tom Van Daele participated in a panel discussion on how we can use technology and improve care and ethical issues in relation to various digital media usage in mental healthcare.
