Event Description

FemTech Untapped – a go-to online global program for all things femtech and women’s health!

About FemTech Untapped program

FemTech Untapped is an online program and a global movement tapping into areas of women’s health that have long been underserved, underresearched, and underfunded. In 2022, we will be covering a wide range of topics with a goal to educate and destigmatize areas of FemTech that still remain “untapped”.

Join us every month for a series of events where we will cover topics from diversity and inclusion in the femtech space, to menstrual health and sextech, to mental and cardiovascular health for women and underrepresented audiences and groups in the healthcare space. Together, we can all work towards FemTech being more accessible and inclusive.

About this event: Mental Health – Beyond Anxiety and Depression

According to WHO, in 2019, 1 in every 8 people, or 970 million people around the world were living with a mental disorder (anxiety and depressive disorders being the most common). In 2020, the number of people living with anxiety and depressive disorders rose significantly because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Initial estimates show a 26% and 28% increase respectively for anxiety and major depressive disorders in just one year.

Although the conversation around anxiety and depression has started, it is still not enough. Mental health goes beyond anxiety and depression. Stigmatizing bipolar disorder, post-traumatic-stress-disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, disruptive behaviour and dissocial disorders, burnout and neurodevelopmental disorders, prevent those in need to seek support and help.

Join us to learn more about mental health beyond anxiety and depression, and hear from our brilliant speakers and the amazing work they’re doing in order to improve mental health care and research worldwide.
