ieso responded to the House of Lords Covid-19 Committee’s call for evidence into the impact of digitalisation on the four key drivers of wellbeing.
The inquiry into “Living Online: The Long-Term Impact on Wellbeing” looks at the long-term impact the pandemic has on our social and economic wellbeing. This includes physical health, mental health, social interaction, and quality of working life.
Our submission specifically focused on the area of mental health that we are experts in, and our view is that living online presents both challenges and opportunities for mental health.
Whilst the pandemic is increasing demand for mental health support, online services offer to close the gap between patient needs and treatment availability, both now and in the future. Digital care removes barriers to therapy access, such as stigma, travel, and timing, by offering flexibility and alternative routes for engagement.
Our approach combines technology with advanced clinical and data science to provide quality, insight-driven CBT.
