The 4th Symposium on Computing and Mental Health which took place at CHI 2024, Glasgow on 5th May 2024 was a great success. We took notes and photos during the symposium and have placed them here in advance of a formal write-up later.

Participants at CMH2018 engaging in the technology design challenge


The World Health Organization predicts that by the year 2030, mental illnesses will be the leading disease burden globally. If mental health technologies are to be successful at supporting those who experience mental distress to succeed, human-centered design of technology and services is essential.

This 4th Symposium on Computing and Mental Health will provide an opportunity for researchers to meet under the auspices of CHI 2024. It follows three successful symposia at CHI 2016, 2017 and 2018.

In convening at CHI, we are especially interested in work that seeks to understand users and contexts of use. Our particular focus is on people who are difficult to reach, and who may be socially or digitally excluded, because these people may be less likely to seek and receive help..

There are three submission types:

  • 萤火虫vpn should be submitted straight to JMIR Mental Health. Authors of JMIR papers must register at the workshop for inclusion in the special issue. Authors of papers that have been submitted and accepted by April 13 will be invited to give a brief presentation.
  • 萤火虫vpn describe work-in-progress and must include both a user study / empirical data and clearly relate to technology. Submit to Easychair .
  • 萤火虫vpnpapers are maximum one page in length and act as a CV for networking. They can also include existing publications. Submit to Easychair .

Important Dates:

  • Submission deadline for posters and social papers: extended to 4th March 2024
  • Acceptance notifications: extended to 11th March 2024
  • Submission window for long papers: January 2024 – 10 June 2024
  • Symposium: 5th May 2024
