Several members of the PITCH lab will be leading a workshop at CHI 2020 on mental health resources. In this workshop, we will examine a constellation of digital and non-digital mental health support resources. We will discuss the needs and practices of individuals managing mental illness, how these needs relate to future ecosystems of technologies and services, and the potentials and repercussions of current technologies.

If you are interested in participating, submit a 2-4 page position paper (including references) as a pdf using the CHI Extended Abstracts format. Submit by emailing mhtechecosystems@gmail.com by 5 pm CST on February 11th 2020.
