Anxiety Tech is a conference for technology developers, programmers, health providers, researchers, and students in the fields of mental health and/or technology who are interested in how virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and mobile applications are changing the way we deal with anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges.
In addition to hearing from leaders in these fields and startups who are changing the game currently, Anxiety Tech will also address mental health among developers, how technology affects mental health, how to build more supportive and inclusive tech communities, and what developers need to know to break ground in their area. We are working on a selection of optional workshops that will allow attendees to put what they have learned into action.
Anxiety Tech will be held on Wednesday, July 18 at the San Francisco Palace of Fine Art’s Theatre.
