The pandemic still making the rounds all over the world has brought further attention to mental health issues. Unfortunately, we are seeing more and more young people struggling with mental health. At the same time, we have to remember that the world’s population is ageing and there is more and more talk of depression and other mental health issues taking a toll on the elderly.
To bring the focus on mental health and support business
development and innovation in this field, the Connected Health
Cluster is inviting experts and innovation leaders to join the
Mental Health Hub to empower mental health businesses with the
help of the cluster.
Members of the Mental Health Hub will be able to share
experiences and offer support and mentoring to early-stage
start-ups and creators of new initiatives. The cluster will
help find funding opportunities for good ideas (i.e. through
grants and project funding) and support members with
communication. We organise various workshops, seminars and
events for our members.
