Episode 71: AI Tools for Mental Health Care
The artificial intelligence landscape is dynamic, with the potential to support health system activities in various ways — and that includes mental health care. We join Dr. Lydia Sequeira (Research Fellow, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and Canada Health Infoway) and Maureen Abbott (Manager, Access to Quality Mental Health Services, Mental Health Commission of Canada) to explore different use cases for AI in mental health care, benefits and challenges, and practical resources.  Please note that this episode includes brief references to suicide and suicidal ideation, within the context of the broader mental health care landscape.  Music: "Inspired," by Kevin MacLeod, licensed under Creative Commons.
