Tuesday, 26. March 2019, World Affairs Council, Design and AI for Mental Health

Sam feels anxious because he does not feel secure in his romantic relationship. Annie feels like she cannot cope with the loss of her job. Experiences of unresolved mental pain are far too numerous in the modern world.
To make things worse, we are particularly adept at distracting ourselves from mental pain. The current systems for supporting us through such challenges are either absent or inadequate for careseekers, caregivers, and their larger communities.
This needs to change.
The world is facing two big mental health crises: a crisis of purpose, and a crisis of love. By recognizing this, we can (more) easily build systems of change that engineer awareness, receptiveness, and gratitude, reinforcing all of those in a positive virtuous cycle of action.
This event is the inaugural event in a series that will share education and advice around how to use Design and AI to solve for Good Mental Health (GMH).  This education and advice will specifically lean towards fostering systems that address the two crises above. 
Our evening together will flow as follows: 
6 - 6:15              Check-in & Settle-in
(5 min)                Warmup
(20 min)              Talk overviewing some approaches to GMH, and how to think much bigger (Ajay)
(10 min)              Q & C (Questions & Conversations)
(20 min)              Open discussion around a participant-contributed general problem
(5 min)                Open calls: Come up and speak for a minute about something you need or something you have to offer in this space
7:15 - 7:30        Connect with others
 
As this series continues, we will expand to conversations with cross-disciplinary experts who have a story or a point-of-view about these topics to share.
Join us on the 26th of March if you’re interested in Good Mental Health for yourself or for someone else.  To stay in the know, join the meetup group.
