Mental Health: Evolving and Scaling Resilient Mental Healthcare Solutions
Mental health is one of the most exacerbated diseases by the ongoing pandemic. However, data show that the global context was already in distress: almost 1 billion people have a mental disorder, and depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide and a major contributor to the overall global burden of disease. In fact, it is estimated that 5% of adults suffer from depression. In addition, 1 in every 100 deaths is by suicide. It is the 4th leading cause of death for young people aged 15-29 years. In this environment, how are digital health solutions taking on the challenge? What do investors expect from the industry? How will insurance policies evolve to meet employees’ changing needs and reality?
In celebrating World Mental Health Day 2021, join us for the fourth instalment of The Records by Novartis BIOME and Galen Growth. We explore the challenges and opportunities in tackling mental health with the help of one of the world’s leading insurers, a venture capital investment firm, and two leading digital health ventures focusing on mental health.
