On the 8th of February, the Closing Conference for the MasterMind European project was held at La Pedrera, Barcelona.
The MasterMind European Project began in 2014 with the purpose of developing and implementing an on-line Cognitive
Behaviour Therapy (CBT) for depressed patients. This international initiative has been implemented in 15 European regions and has lasted 36 months. The Basque Country actively participated through Kronikgune and Osakidetza. Aside from being one of the pilot studies, it has led two areas of the project, the coordination of the on-line CBT implementation in 9 pilot sites and the evaluation of the results.
In the closing conference they presented the results of the project from different perspectives: clinical effectiveness, safety, perception of patients and professionals, as well as organisational and economic issues. They also showed the barriers and the success factors that they identified when implementing CBT, how some organisational models have changed in terms of mental health, and the importance of the implementation of new Information Technologies (ICTs) for mental health treatments.
This event was attended by a great number of people (127) both members of the consortium and representatives of the European Commission and the WHO. It could also be followed live through the project’s website. The event had 18 speakers and panellists, who shared their point of view on the project, its results, mental e-health and health innovation. The event had a very active participation, both by those present as through the messages and comments sent through social media.
