About DPSIG

We're delighted to announce a new Special Interest Group (SIG) which will be focused on Digital Psychiatry. 

The SIG will primarily focus on four areas:

  • technology in clinical practice
  • research insights
  • educational opportunities and
  • community building. 

The SIG's work will enhance evidence-based leadership within the field of mental health and technology.  

Digital SIG Launch event

The SIG had our launch event on 31 March on the theme of Digital Inclusion. We had almost 100 attendees live, but if you were not able to make it on the day, please watch a recording of the event. There are bookmarks for the times of each speaker if you just want to view an individual presentation.

We will be putting up some bitesize clips of the event in the future.

  1. Introduction to the Digital SIG: VR to telepsychiatry and everything in between Dr Romy Gad el Rab and Dr David Rigby (co-chairs of Digital SIG).

  2. How Citizens Online helps to ensure the switch to online doesn’t exclude people -  Jenny Haskey CEO Citizens Online
