The agenda for Stream Europe 2018 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream Europe participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page.
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream Europe team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

How can deep tech be used to positively impact maternal/paternal mental health

According to the World Health Organisation, Worldwide about 10% of pregnant women and 13% of women who have just given birth experience a mental disorder, primarily depression. In developing countries this is even higher, i.e. 15.6% during pregnancy and 19.8% after child birth. In severe cases mothers’ suffering might be so severe that they may even commit suicide. In addition, the affected mothers cannot function properly. As a result, the children’s growth and development may be negatively affected as well. Maternal mental disorders are treatable. Effective interventions can be delivered even by well-trained non-specialist health providers. In the advent of automation how could deep tech support with early identification and treatment of parental mental health issues to improve the life chances for children across the globe?
