Health & Mental Well Being: No Patient Left Behind

June 12, 2019
13:30 - 14:30
Room 103 b
Can you ask a diabetic patient who is also clinically depressed to be more engaged with his/her health or to make important lifestyle changes? Not that easy. Mental health is a true "unmentionable": something we rarely openly discuss but that still prevents citizens and patients from being their healthiest selves. Health starts with mental well-being, and a wide range of digital health solutions are now supporting the integration of health and mental health while supporting mental health patients in becoming, just like any other patients, empowered stakeholders of the care team. This session will discuss integrating mental and physical health; bringing together these 2 separate worlds to achieve a more holistic picture of patients health. We will also hear the patients' point of view, considering how one's state of mind can affect the ability to successfully comply with treatment or engage with digital technologies.
