Your digital therapist will see you now. The rise of the digital human and using AI for Mental Health Effectively.


The Future of Work. How we’re using Artificial Intelligence to create mentally healthy workplaces.  

25% of the New Zealand workforce has faced a mental health disorder already. That’s equivalent to approximately 400,000 people.  

Is AI the virtual window for office-day mental health? Is it the game-changer that can deliver these vital services with scale? What makes AI for mental health appealing? Do we understand the ground-breaking technologies and how we can use them?  

Join IMNZ and a panel of technology and business leaders as they share strategies for addressing mental health in the workplace and how we’re using Artificial Intelligence to create mentally healthy workplaces. 

All ticket sales will be going to the I Am Hope Foundation.
