Track Type: Lecture |Date: 19 Aug 2021 (Thu) | Time: 1410 - 1430

Mental health disorders are debilitating, affecting functioning at multiple domains. Despite the high prevalence of mental health disorders, many people are not keen to seek professional help, due to poor mental health literacy. Mental health literacy can be increased by information and communication technological interventions. Nurses play a crucial role in the development and dissemination of interventions to promote early help – seeking, recovery and enhancing quality of life among our patients.
