Disrupting Mental Illness: Advancing Technologies, Improving Lives (Non-CME)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Despite the immense potential for technologies to "disrupt" mental illness, too few viable solutions have made it into the hands of those who need them most. To spur innovation and bridge the gap between the technology community and the mental health community, Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. is hosting a first-of-its-kind Live Pitch Event. This Pitch Event will bring together an exclusive group of promising technologists to showcase their new innovations to the mental health community. Each group of entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to deliver a short pitch before a panel of expert judges made up of mental health professionals, venture capitalists, and industry representatives, as well as those living with mental illness and their supporters. Following the short pitches by each team, the judges will select a winner. The Pitch Event is sponsored by Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. in conjunction with Psych Congress.

Limited seating. Pre-registration is required.
