Technology, Aging, and Mental Health: Opportunities and challenges

AgeTech refers to the use of existing and emerging technologies (e.g., digital media, information and communication technologies [ICTs], big data and AI, mobile technologies, wearables, and smart home systems) to keep older adults connected and to deliver health and community services. Application of technology-based solutions to mental health and illness is especially important for older adults to remain happy, healthy, and independent, while reducing demands on healthcare services. The COVID-19 pandemic in particular has laid bare many of the mental health challenges facing people as they grow older and the need to develop and implement innovative solutions to help people age in place.

In this special issue, we are inviting original research exploring, developing and evaluating innovative solutions to support the mental health and well-being of older adults. The goal is to provide a benchmark issue of wide interest to an interdisciplinary community of researchers across fields and disciplines.
