(Source: https://htn.co.uk/) Digital mental health provider, SilverCloud, has released a new whitepaper about the impact of COVID-19 on the delivery of mental health services.
Entitled, ‘Digital Mental Health in the Wake of a Global Pandemic: Reshaping Service Delivery’, the paper also takes a closer look at how increasing demand for mental health support has been met, the challenges around maximising the positive impact of using digital mental health tools, and recommendations for the delivery of mental health services at scale.
