Health Hack Academy 2016

MentaL Health, September 10-11 2016, STOCKHOLM

We need your help to increase the mental health & wellbeing among teenagers. Save the date for the 2016 edition of Health Hack Academy September 10-11.

Mental issues among teenagers is increasing and almost 60% of 15-year-old girls are reporting psychosomatic issues. Can better insights in psychology lead to improved well-being? How can we employ new digital tools and communication channels to reach teenagers as well as professionals at schools? We need your skills and experiences.

Registration will open in August and we will continuously add more information about the hackathon challenges on this site. Make sure to sign up for our news to make sure not to miss any information.

Extended team of organizers. And a new venue.

This year Health Hack Academy has teamed up with Gustavsberg vårdcentral, a primary care centre just outside Stockholm that is determined to be the best at treating mental illness. All teams will have access to experienced psychologists. We also welcome SKL (Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions) as a partner, supporting that good ideas from the hackathon will be spread in the national health care systems. As before, the design experts at Veryday will help you to develop your ideas better and faster. Health Hack Academy 2016 will be held at H2 Health Hub – Stockholm’s new co-working and event space for for digital health entrepreneurs & startups.

Big-ups to all excellent teams that joined the Iot for Health hackathon 2015
