MasterMind Final Conference

La Pedrera – Barcelona


The MasterMind Final Conference will mark the culmination of the project with the unveiling of results from three years of dedicated work towards paving the way for high quality depression treatment to become more widely available. But it doesn’t stop there. The results will be put into the political, clinical, and organisational perspectives of eMental health deployment – beyond the natural limits of an EU project – and will form the basis for a broad-spectrum debate about the future of mental health. High level speakers from policy, research, interest organisations, and more, will enrich the discussions with their individual perspectives.

MasterMind project

The MasterMind project aims to make high quality treatment for depression more widely available for adults suffering from the illness by the use of ICT. A major cause of morbidity worldwide, depression is characterised by its high incidence, social cost and proven clinical effectiveness of ICT in its treatment.

MasterMind is implementing two services across Europe during the project period: cCBT (computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and ccVC (video conference for Collaborative Care and treatment).

cCBT is computerised treatment at home or in community locations. cCBT makes it possible for more patients to receive high quality treatment in a flexible yet effective manner.

ccVC comprises video conference based collaboration between healthcare professionals for increased quality of care through knowledge sharing and support from specialists as well as video conference based treatment of patients. The benefits of this service include more equal access to specialised knowledge for professionals and high quality treatment in the immediate environment for patients.

The project is assessing the impact of the two ICT-based services using the MAST evaluation framework and identifying barriers and success factors for this large scale deployment in different political, social, economic and technical healthcare contexts and from the perspective of the project’s many important stakeholders.

MasterMind is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT_PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community.
