The agenda for Stream USA 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 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 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.

Designing and deploying new media to improve mental health at unprecedented levels and at a global scale

There’s a deluge of products emerging on the market that are aimed at improving mental health and wellbeing. Some of these are beautiful and engaging, but there’s little evidence they actually work to improve mental health outcomes (e.g., anxiety, depression). Other products (e.g., e-mental health platforms) have strong scientific foundations, yet they struggle with engaging and retaining users. How can scientists and designers work together to address these gaps? How do we capitalize on the billion dollar health industry and bring the best products to the largest consumer base seeking mental health products? How can entrepreneurs, behavioural scientists, and designers work together to transform the delivery models and global reach of emerging tech for mental health?
