Hope for high tech health during COVID-19
COVID-19 is sparking a global mental health crisis - but digital and telemedicine interventions are a ray of hope.
Professor Kim Cornish, Director of the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health, explores how digital technologies have the potential to support those in need.
Professor Cornish says the global community is going through rapidly escalating change in ways that were almost unthinkable just at New Year. Even those of us untouched by COVID-19 directly have felt the effects in the risk to our physical safety and our loved ones, coupled with economic shock, constant bad news, social isolation and reduced freedom.
