Mental health is a vast and growing worldwide problem. Because it can affect people at a young age, they will often need treatment and support for many years. During that long period, they will be unable to participate to their full potential in society. This explains why, in addition to the suffering experienced by individuals and their families, mental health problems also have an enormous economic and societal impact.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has seen exponential growth and astonishing breakthroughs in recent years. It has the potential to impact every aspect of modern life and society. Scientists and clinicians have already begun to explore its power for mental health research and treatment. The first results are enormously promising.

Join us for an annual conference presented by the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute and SCIENCE magazine focused on AI and mental health. This year’s two-day conference will highlight how AI can be used to benefit individuals and society. Over the course of these two days, we are planning to discuss the current state of AI and why we have recently seen such astonishing progress. Later, we will review promising applications of AI for the diagnosis and treatment of mental health.
