About this event

Join this event to hear from Dr. Kylie Henderson, Founder & Managing Director of The Better Health Generation. Face-to-face mental health services came to a standstill last year, at a time when the world, particularly children and young people, needed them most. Mental healthcare faces two main issues. Firstly, it is not easy to get access to mental health professionals on a timely basis. Secondly, for patients who manage to get professional help, the diagnostic process and quality of care are not consistent. Medical estimates indicate that around two-thirds of all depression cases go undiagnosed. Digital health solutions could address the twin issues of access to timely care and consistent quality of care.

Dr Kylie Henderson, Founder and Managing Director of The Better Health Generation, established the organisation in 2013. Dr Henderson holds a Doctorate of Clinical Psychology and has more than 20 years experience in mental health and work. She obtained her doctorate in 2010, conducting studies in mental health, health and return to work. She is a member of many professional organisations, including the national secretary of Australian Psychological Society Clinical College, and recognised as a research fellow of the University of Southern Queensland, fellow of the Institute of Employability Professionals, a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts, a fellow of the Australasian Digital Health.
