Mental health is one of the big challenges of the 21st century, both on an individual and on a societal level. A growing number of groups in industry and academia are currently developping digital solutions to some of the most pressing issues in mental health and wellbeing. In this talk we will have a look at several lines of ongoing R&D work, including work in emotion-aware AI, explainable AI, and privacy-preserving AI and corresponding applications in the context of digital mental health. I will give an overview of relevant approaches from a research and technology angle, but will also shed light on questions regarding ethical aspects of developing and deploying data-driven digital solutions particularly in the (mental) health and wellbeing space.
