WHO Mental Health Day 2018

AffecTech supports the World Health Organisation (WHO) World Mental Health Day 2018, which is raising awareness on the important issue of young people and mental health in a changing world.

World Mental Health Day provides an opportunity for everyone working on mental health issues to talk about their work, to raise awareness and take steps to strengthen mental health for people worldwide.


The AffecTech project is an international collaborative network that advances personal health technologies for affective disorders – depression, anxiety and bipolar, and aims to deliver an effective low cost technology platform to help sufferers.

AffecTech has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 722022.
