Abstract

This expert panel was convened at CyberTherapy 14, in
Verbania, Italy, on June 23, 2009, for the purpose discussing
current and future uses of technology for the mental
health of deployed military service members. Panel members
were selected on the basis of their being military mental health
providers working with advanced technology either in combat
zones or in military treatment facilities, or developing
technology to be used in these settings. The panel was charged
with examining both appropriate and inappropriate use of
current technologies to assist with the psychological health of
service members in the field. The panel was also tasked with
pointing out areas where technology can further develop to
support the psychological health of the field-deployed service
member.
