iBehave focusses on the usage of technology as an enabler of behaviour change, by enabling behavioural transition from risk behaviours to those akin with positive health outcomes.
Organised by ex-Unilever health innovator Luke Raskino, iBehave is a monthly interdisciplinary event, connecting entrepeneurs, developers, UX designers, gamification experts, medical practitioners and anyone interested in behaviour change.
This month’s event was entitled “Mental Health & Behaviour Change“, and featured presentations and a panel discussion with Stuart and:
Mark Brown: Editor of One in Four Magazine, England’s only national mental health and wellbeing magazine written by people who experience mental health difficulties. (Mark is a vocal supporter of Mindings, having guested on The Disruptive Social Care Podcast and speaking about Mindings “importance”)
Dr Eva Cyhlarova: Head of Research, Mental Health Foundation. Following a D.Phil. in Experimental Psychology from the University of Oxford, Eva worked as a Senior Research Scientist at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics in Oxford. She pursued research in several scientific fields related to mental health, managing a number of large-scale projects.
A lively panel discussion followed the event, with much interest in Mindings impact on social isolation – a very relevant issue in mental health.
