What is the Polycare Project?

A project funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme

Polycare is an Horizon 2020 European project that aims for better conditions of life and care for older chronic patients and the improvement of the sustainability of the health and social care systems.

The POLYCARE project aims to develop and test an integrated care model, patient-centred, supported by the use of advanced ICT systems and services that allows the monitoring and care of older chronic patients in acute phases at home.

Finding good online resources for mental health support

Search engines ‘could help young people find best mental health resources’

Search engines and content providers could have a role to play in helping young people find the most reliable mental health resources online.

With well over 10,000 apps in the mental health area, quantity is not the problem. It’s much more about understanding people’s lives and how they communicate and, of course, it’s about quality.

AyeMind aims to create a digital platform to support young people in mental wellbeing and create digital resources for it; and DocReady is designed to help with a person’s first GP conversation on mental health.
