American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting 2017

I think one of the best things about using the term ‘mHealth’ to refer to the convergence of Health to Mobile is that it by default prioritises mental health as many medics (particularly those who haven’t yet realised that their mobile phones turn them into cyborgs and give them super powers) would think that you’re talking about mental health if they didn’t know the m was being used to denote Mobile (the newest mass media).

I think it’s obvious that ‘go and get help’ doesn’t make sense to the BornMobile generation when they encounter mental health issues so while it’s great to see so many mHealth events being held all over the world it’s probably even more encouraging to also see major medical associations like the America Psychiatric Association (follow them on Twitter @APAPsychiatric) adding mHealth themed sessions to their annual meetings (help in San Diego for 2017).

Note: Sadly the APA has really outdated views on social media and although there’s a hashtag it’ll probably be just dominated by sales & marketing adverts as they’ve banned the taking of any images/video.
