Levit8 is one of Australia’s leading managed IT services providers, which means we have been working closely with technology for many years. We have seen first-hand the negative side effects technology can have on mental health. However, we have also had the opportunity to see the amazing benefits and tools that technology can bring to mental health care.
There is no denying which direction the world is going in when it comes to the use and expansion of technology; therefore, it is important to change technology from being the reason we might suffer with poor mental health to the reason we solve it.
Technology can have negative effects, however it has at least, if not more, benefits when used to its full potential. Many major medical and scientific advances occur in association with technology, and there is no arguing that the computer and the internet are the greatest inventions of this era.
