Event Details

Starting with demonstrations, the event will showcase a diversity of programs, platforms, and emerging technologies that serve to alleviate depression. Next, participanats will brainstorm over dinner, with the goal of sharing feedback with our guests, identifying platforms and opportunities for the future.  Based on what we discover, we plan to follow-up the event in the spring of 2013, with a Hackathon devoted to improving mental health and facilitating a more collaborative and supportive environment at MIT.
