Spread the word, and change a life!

 

Issues of mental health affect millions of Australian's every year, which extends past people diagnosed with diseases and includes the famliy members and carers of those affected. 

The recent Australian Government Budget noted an increase in health funding, specifically that of Mental Health. The Government are now committed to bringing the health system into the digital age through sponsoring the development of treatments, information and support accessible through online sites and applications - basicallly, MindHack could not come at a better time!

We have a range of mentors coming. Our mentors, lead by the Former Director of the World Health Organisation's Division of Mental Health, include: 

Running of MindHack!

Mental Health is such a broad and diverse topic, so we have decided to focus on four key challenges so we can get as much success as possible. Our challenges are:

1) How do we enhance the ongoing interaction and knowledge sharing between research scientists and the mental health community?

2) How do we facilitate scenarios for creative encounters between neuroscience researchers and people with lived experience within the research environment?

3) How do we make research, data and shared experiences more accessible? Can this be presented in a way that laymen can understand, and share globally?

4) How do we address stigma and prejudice around mental health? Keep in mind that for tech solutions, we need with one foot in the digital world and the other planted firmly in that of the human face-to-face encounters.

Don't worry if you already have an idea and it doesn't fall under one of these challenges! So long as it falls under the mental health topic, you are more than welcome to pitch and work on your ides.
