Tremendous advances in science and technology have enabled greater understanding of the brain, yet mental health care remains inaccessible and inadequate for much of the world’s population.
McLean Hospital’s Institute for Technology in Psychiatry (ITP) brings together thought leaders in health care, data science, technology, industry, patient advocacy, academic research, and more for this three-day event to build on the promise of technology in the diagnosis and delivery of mental health care.
This event is targeted at an inclusive group of academics, data scientists, clinicians, technology developers, entrepreneurs, policymakers, investors, patient advocates, and health professionals who are interested in shaping the future of mental health care.
The ITP partners with like-minded organizations looking to integrate technology into the field of psychiatry to improve research and care.
Register now to join us at the 2021 Technology in Psychiatry Summit.
The theme of the 2020 conference was “Molecules to Mobile Phones: From Crisis to Opportunity,” focusing on the translational gap between findings in basic neuroscience to scalable and applied digital technology. We also examined how these technologies and neuroscience tools aided research and treatment during the recent global crises, and look at understanding the equity and ethics of these methods.
With keynote addresses, interactive panel discussions, technology demonstrations, and a virtual poster session, attendees examined the evolving state of global mental health efforts, cutting-edge trends in neurosciences, and new technologies and analytical tools that are cross-cutting traditionally separate disciplines to help address some of the world’s most challenging mental health problems.
Talks at the 2020 conference included topics such as:

As research around digital psychiatry rapidly expands, it has become evident that there remains a vast potential for the application of technology across clinical populations. The 2019 summit focused on understanding how the application of technology varies among children, adolescents, young adults, and older adults. The conference further explored how technology can enhance care in major neuropsychiatric disorders such as autism and dementia. For the first time, the meeting also invited panel proposals from researchers around the world. The theme of the 2019 summit was, “The Future of Mental Health Across the Life Span.”
2019 keynote speakers were Molly Coye, MD, MPH, AVIA, Saul Levin, MD, MPA, FRCP-E, American Psychiatric Association, and Wendy Nilsen, PhD, National Science Foundation.
The theme of the 2018 Technology in Psychiatry Summit was “Closing Gaps in Translation.” Lectures and panels covered the topic in the sense of using technology and pervasive sensing approaches to advance the detailed cross-species study of behavior in order to help bridge the human-nonhuman translational gap, as well as applying these approaches to improve mental health in under-resourced areas both globally and in the U.S.
Keynote speakers included Michelle A. Williams, SM, ScD, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Alex “Sandy” Pentland, PhD, MIT Connection Science and Human Dynamics Labs, and Bruce Cuthbert, PhD, NIMH Research Domain Criteria.
The 2017 Technology in Psychiatry Summit was a first of its kind event targeted at bringing together the nation’s top technology and mental health experts to build on the promise of technology in the diagnosis and delivery of mental health care. Among the who’s who of presenters were Tom Insel, MD, former NIMH director, Ken Duckworth, MD, of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Roz Picard, ScD, of the Affective Computing Research Group at MIT, and Sarah Lenz Lock, JD, of the AARP.
