E-health Week 2016
The European E-Health Week in June 2016 was a success. At the request of the Dutch Ministry of Health, the Trimbos Institute organised one of the major workshops. It dealt with virtual reality exposure therapy, the e-health laboratory E-Lab, applied games for mental health and a selection of best-practice online services.
The WellMom app was introduced in the United States. It was one of two innovative apps launched during the European E-Health Week which are designed to maintain well-being and prevent depression during and after pregnancy. Those apps, Loss and WellMom, were developed with the support of crowdfunding and in cooperation with a US mental health technology firm.
