About

The Informatics & Telecommunications in Psychiatry (Proposed new name: Digital Mental Health Section (DMH Section)) of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA) aims to provide knowledge, collaborations, and support to all psychiatrists worldwide interested in digital technologies applied to mental health care. It will be done through symposia, CME courses, publications, and joint symposia with other WPA sections.

 

To be a member:

- Interest in digital tools in mental health care.

- No minimum knowledge of technology is needed.

- No need for experience with digital tools as a psychiatrist.

This committee now works as an interim one as the Section renewal was approved by the Executive Committee on an ad-hoc basis. Elections for a full three-year term will be held at the time of the General Assembly next year (2023).
