Abstract

The World Health Organisation has concluded that
emotional wellbeing is fundamental to our quality of
life. It enables us to experience life as meaningful and
is an essential component of social cohesion, peace and
stability in the living environment [21]. This workshop
will bring together a diverse community to consolidate
existing knowledge and identify new opportunities for
research on technologies designed to support emotional
wellbeing. The workshop will examine uses of
technology in mental health settings, but will also
consider the importance of emotional needs in physical
healthcare and wellbeing more generally. The design of
technology to provide social support and to extend
traditional care networks will be key workshop themes.
